Here is a list of what we have accomplished in February.
Memberships and renewals are coming in – make sure to get yours in before March 31st, as that is the Membership Directory deadline AND the deadline for membership to vote in the next General Election.
ATAA website is updated and is getting lots of hits. Pay Pal button is coming soon to renew online.
Registration Amnesty - $35 per horse, passed by majority vote. We hope to get many more horses registered with the idea of publishing another issue of the Registry (North American Stud) Book later this year.
Awards – Shannon Mayfield, who has done the FOTATA (Friends of the Akhal-Teke) awards for the past few years has agreed to let the ATAA co-sponsor the awards. There will still be non-ATAA awards, but there will also be several FOTATA awards for ATAA members only.
USDF Awards- The ATAA is now a Participating Member of the USDF (United States Dressage Federation) and will be offering awards through them, to be presented at the national USDF conference. If this is your discipline, make sure you’re eligible!
AERC Awards – we are working on AERC (American Endurance Ride Conference) awards to be given for high point Limited Distance and Endurance, to be presented at the AERC national conference.
Our wonderful awards volunteer, Catrina Mettam, has facilitated the two awards above and is working on national awards in Eventing, Jumping and possibly some for Canadian horses. Watch the website for more information.
Treasury Audit, per our bylaws, is in the works.
Fidelity Bond, per our bylaws, paid for.
Clubs and Associations insurance is paid for.
ATAA yearly conference will be co-hosted by Cathy Leddy and Amrita Ibold in Washington State…it should be great! Watch the website and newsletter for updates, dates and venue.
We have many more projects we are working on – make sure you’re part of the fun!
