AQHA Rule-Change Proposal Deadline

The deadline for submitting AQHA rule-change proposals is fast approaching.

AQHA wants to hear any suggestions you have to make AQHA membership, programs and services reach their fullest potential.

The American Quarter Horse Association is an organization that works for its members. Now is your chance to make a difference and submit items to be considered by AQHA standing committees March 11-14 at the 2016 AQHA Convention at the South Point Casino & Spa in Las Vegas.

Each spring, AQHA holds a convention to review AQHA rules and policies. During the convention, member-submitted rule changes and suggestions are also reviewed. AQHA wants to hear any suggestions you have to make AQHA membership, programs and services reach their fullest potential.

AQHA members have until December 31, 2015, to submit items for the convention, but if you believe there is a need for a major rule change, the Association is encouraging members to submit items earlier to give Association staff and/or committees and councils more time to prepare materials and communicate potential changes before the convention in March 2016. AQHA standing committees will meet at convention to consider the submitted items.

Download and complete the rule-change proposal form; there are two versions of the form available for your convenience at www.aqha.com/convention.

Log in to the AQHA Member Services area for a list of the standing committees.

Once you have completed the form, please return it via email to rulechanges@aqha.org. If you prefer, items may also be submitted by mail at: AQHA ATTN: (Committee Name) P.O. Box 200 Amarillo, TX 79168
