The vote occurred during a special meeting of the AMI membership and is the last step necessary to finalize a merger, slated to occur Jan. 1, 2015.

AMI's board voted April 2 to proceed with the merger, and NAMA's board also voted in favor of the merger March 22.

Both national trade associations represent companies that process red meat and poultry.
