Broadway Named President of American Horse Council



AMHA Executive Director, Julie Broadway, has been named president of the American Horse Council, succeeding Jay Hickey, who is retiring June 30, 2016.

The American Horse Council, founded in 1969 as a Washington D.C.-based national association representing all segments of the horse industry, promotes and protects all horse breeds, disciplines and interests in communicating with Congress, federal agencies, the media, and the industry itself. Broadway will participate in the American Horse Council's annual meeting in Washington D.C. and start her official duties July 1, 2016.

"We are sad to see Julie depart after nine years with AMHA, but are beyond thrilled for her in her new position," said AMHA President Jeff Gove. "Julie has made tremendous contributions to AMHA and we’ve experienced some great accomplishments during her tenure. I also want to thank Julie for her leadership during the upcoming transition."

The AMHA Board of Directors has appointed Molly O’Brien as Interim Executive Director while a search is conducted for a permanent replacement. O’Brien will spend approximately six weeks with Broadway getting up to speed. O’Brien’s previous experience includes leadership positions at AMHA, International Arabian Horse Association, Turley Publications and most recently W. F. Young/Absorbine. In addition, she co-chaired the New England Morgan Horse Show Committee for 10 years, and has managed the Massachusetts Morgan Horse Show since 2008. 

The Association is seeking an experienced leader to serve as its Executive Director and to guide the association into the future. The Executive Director is expected to provide vision and leadership by planning, organizing, directing, and coordinating the activities of the Association and the Educational Charitable Trust. This is a full time position located at the AMHA headquarters in Shelburne, Vermont.

A full copy of the job description is available upon request. Resume, letters of interest, and salary requirements may be sent electronically to AMHA President Jeff Gove at jeffreygove@yahoo.com. Deadline for submissions is June 1, 2016. No phone calls please.
