If you’ve never attended YES, in Amarillo, Texas, it’s an amazing opportunity to meet new people and have fun learning about leadership! Hosted by the 2012-2013 AQHYA Officers and Directors, YES will hold a wide variety of activities and speakers focused on YOUTH!

This year, our Youth Excellence Seminar will feature John Beede, a Horse Judging Mini-Seminar, and Gerry Kelly, a hypnotist.

"YES is a great opportunity for our AQHYA members to meet other members from around the country and learn valuable leadership skills," said Robin Alden, AQHA Manager of AQHYA and Youth Development.

AQHYA’s leadership team for 2013-14 will be decided at YES. Voting delegates representing the affiliates will elect the AQHYA officers and directors during the convention. AQHYA’s 11 regions will also elect up to three directors to represent their region during the conference.

“Creating new leaders and teaching them the foundations of good leadership is what we hope to accomplish with this year’s seminar,” said Todd Branson, AQHA Director of Youth Development.
