  • The ABF will maintain an organization that is normally proactive rather than reactive in handling industry issues.
  • The resolutions and decisions of the ABF will be based upon the best facts and information available.
  • The issues outcome will be directed toward maintaining an industry that is self-supporting with a minimum of government involvement.
  • The deliberations of an official body of the ABF will recognize and consider the impact of its decisions on the industry as a whole.
  • The ABF will serve as an information source to its members on those issues affecting the industry.
