Nominating Committee Still Accepting Candidates for ASHA Board



Do you know someone with some special skills who would make a great member of the American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) Board? The 2012 Nominating Committee of ASHA is still accepting candidate nominations for the ASHA Board of Directors, however, the deadline for receipt of candidate nominations is Friday, September 7, 2012.

The nominating committee consists of Keith Bartz, Bob Funkhouser, Claire Panke, David Rudder, and Committee Chairman Betsy Boone.

The purpose of the committee is to prepare recommendations for ASHA directors to be elected to 3-year terms beginning in February, 2013.

The Nominating Committee directed ASHA staff to undertake all possible means to solicit suggestions from the membership, including by email and publishing releases in Saddlebred media.  In addition, all suggestions received during previous years have been forwarded to this year’s committee.

Article III, Part II of the ASHA Bylaws govern the election procedures each year. The Nominating Committee is required to weigh and balance many factors in making its recommendations, including, but not limited to geography, experience with the breed and its governing organizations, other governance positions, committee service, and expertise required by ASHA.  Those on the Nominating Committee also want to reach out to the entire membership to seek qualified candidates for consideration, so that anyone who wishes to be considered, or who has a recommendation of a qualified individual, can be encouraged to put those names forward. Nomination forms are being provided as the Nominating Committee will be looking for specific criteria to find candidates to replace departing board members as well as other needs on the Board of Directors. The Nominating Committee very much encourages the membership to get involved in this election process.

Suggestions for possible candidates to serve on the board should be submitted on the nomination form and sent to: 

 American Saddlebred Horse Association
Attn: Nominating Committee
4083 Iron Works Parkway
Lexington, KY  40511 

Nomination forms may be downloaded by clicking here, or optionally be sent by fax to (859) 259-1628, or by email to k.adams@asha.net, and should be received in the ASHA office no later than Friday, September 7, 2012.
