UPHA Welcomes Suzanne Donaldson



The UPHA is pleased to announce the addition of Suzanne Donaldson to the position of Executive Assistant to the President. Suzanne, a graduate of the University of Miami, most recently served as Executive Director and Registrar of the Rocky Mountain Horse Association in Winchester, Kentucky. Suzanne's background with the Rockies included serving on their Board of Directors, Hearing Panel Member and Chairperson of the Show Advisory Committee. Her twelve years in service with this breed gained her vast experience with committee work, membership and nonprofit administration. Prior to her position with the RMHA, Suzanne worked with other organizations such as the NFL Miami Dolphins and the USFL Birmingham Stallions in public relations handling charitable events and player's personal appearances. 

Suzanne was asked about what programs she would like to focus on. "Marketing and Social Media have become an integral part of membership-based organizations." said Suzanne. "We will be looking for ways to improve our communication to the membership."

"We're very excited to have Suzanne with us at the UPHA" stated Tammie Conaster, President of the UPHA. "Suzanne will be working closely with Nancy Becker on programs that will move the UPHA forward. We were very pleased with the quality of applicants that we interviewed for the position but Suzanne's experience in Non Profit Administration, Marketing and the Equine Industry were a perfect fit for the UPHA and its future goals." 

Suzanne will be working closely with Kristin Stivers at the 2016 Super Convention in Boston while she transitions to her new position with McMahon & Hill Bloodstock.
