The updated organizational governance underscores the American Bakers Association’s (ABA) commitment to advancing the interests of its members through procedural best practices and transparent processes.

As the leading trade association representing the commercial baking industry in the US, ABA plays a pivotal role in shaping its future.

It’s served as the voice of the sector since 1897, acting for more than 300 member companies – which together account for over 1,200 commercial baking facilities – in matters that involve advocacy, thought leadership and research on industry trends.

Over the past year, the team of the Washington, DC-based association – including its general counsel and Board of Directors – has been working on updates of the ABA’s bylaws.

These have now been approved by the Board of Governors.

The revisions are designed to enhance operational efficiency through continuous improvement and a streamlined governance structure to strengthen member engagement.

“The review of the bylaws was an organizational imperative to ensure ABA was operating as a best-in-class association for its members,” said ABA Chair Cordia Harrington.

“The bylaw updates are a testament to our collective effort and foresight. I am proud of the thoughtful and diligent work of the ABA Board and staff on this initiative and know the updates will serve the membership well.” 

Added ABA president and CEO Eric Dell, “ABA is steadfast in its commitment to growing, connecting and enhancing the baking industry. None of which would be possible without a strong foundation.

“We are confident these updated bylaws give us the necessary foundation to support the industry’s continued growth​ and success most professionally."
