Come to Convention!
AQHA’s annual convention is March 17-20 in San Antonio.
By AQHA President Sandy Arledge | January 23, 2017
The 2017 AQHA Convention is rolling into San Antonio, March 17-20 at the Grand Hyatt.
The convention is a chance for breeders, trainers, owners and horse lovers of all kinds to talk about issues affecting the industry and discuss proposed changes to the way AQHA does business.
There are a couple of items regarding the convention that you should know:
- To have voting rights at the 2017 convention, you must be an AQHA member at least 60 days prior to the first day of the 2017 convention.
Committee meetings are open to registered convention attendees and are conducted in two sessions – an “open discussion” session in which non-committee members can join in the discussion and a “committee member discussion” session in which the discussion is limited to committee members only. Occasionally, a meeting may move into a “committee members only” session per direction of the committee or chairperson.
Per AQHA Bylaws Article III, Section 1(a), the number of elected directors is determined by an annual allocation formula based on the number of active AQHA numbered and Appendix horses as of September 30 of the preceding year. View the list of each director’s current status – if they are seeking re-election or have been elevated to a director emeritus or director-at-large status.
Finally, don’t forget that you are always welcome to share your views and comments regarding issues that affect or pertain to AQHA with AQHA directors. A list of your directors and their contact information can be found in the Governance section of www.aqha.com/services.
