WCHS Town Hall Hosted by Joint Leadership Council

The Joint Leadership Council, comprised of members from the AHHS, AMHA, ARHPA, ASHA, and UPHA, will be hosting a Town Hall with the decision makers from the 2020 World’s Championship Horse Show. The Town Hall will be held on Thursday, August 6 at 7:00 PM ET on Zoom.

The Joint Leadership Council is aware of the many questions and concerns members and exhibitors have around the upcoming World's Championship Horse Show. The Town Hall has been organized to assist with communications and to allow our collective memberships to hear directly from the show and other decision makers.

The panel will include from Kentucky Venues: David Beck (CEO), Kevin Moore (General Manager of the Kentucky Expo Center) and Shawn Hensler (Executive Director of Public Safety and Security), from WCHS: Scarlett Mattson (Manager), from the Kentucky State Fair Board: Hoppy Bennett, Tandy Patrick, and from USEF: Bill Moroney (CEO), Lisa Owens (Competition Services Managing Director) and Katlynn Sacco (Competition Licenses, Evaluation and Safety Director).

Registration will be required for the Town Hall and is available here.

Attendance capacity is limited for the Town Hall, so it will be recorded and available after the meeting for those that cannot attend. To submit questions for the Town Hall before or during the meeting please email your questions directly to [email protected].

When the Joint Leadership Council was created we obviously did not foresee the challenges brought by 2020, but we have seen how much more effective working together has been in joint matters. The whole of the trotting horse industry is much greater than the sum of its individual parts. Let's continue to work together and make a difference.
