AQHA Bylaw and Registration Changes

Modifications to AQHA Bylaws, as well as registration-related items, were reviewed by AQHA members and the AQHA Board of Directors at convention. Per the Association’s bylaws, the board of directors has the final authority when it comes to changes or additions to AQHA’s bylaws and rules of registration. The Association will publish more information at a later date regarding the rule changes recommended by these two committees and approved by the board of directors.

The additional 11 standing committee reports will be reviewed by the AQHA Executive Committee for final approval before rule changes are implemented.
