NCHA Announces Executive Director Plans

From the National Cutting Horse Association

The National Cutting Horse Association is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Chuck Smith to continue to serve as the NCHA interim executive director during the remaining term of his presidency and to assume full-time executive director duties after the convention in June 2017.

After reviewing the resumes of numerous applicants for the position, the NCHA Executive Committee felt Chuck's combination of experience in the cutting horse industry, knowledge of the Association and its members and the love for the sport of cutting and the cutting horse uniquely qualify him to lead the Association into the future. NCHA staff had the opportunity to work with Chuck as an interim executive director and believes this arrangement provides continuity and fully supports Chuck in this role.

The NCHA Executive Committee is excited Chuck has made this commitment and looks forward to working with him and continuing to grow the association under his leadership.
