The Rocky Mountain Horse Association Board has sadly accepted the resignation of Suzanne Donaldson. We thank her for dedication to the Rocky Mountain Horse, and for her many accomplishments while Executive Director of the RMHA. We wish her success in her career and expect to see her still - enjoying future Rocky Mountain Horse events as an enthusiast instead of an employee.
The RMHA Board has initiated the process of selecting and hiring a new Executive Director. If you have interest in this position, please submit your resume and request for an RMHA job application to John Stivers, RMHA Vice President, at firstname.lastname@example.org. He can provide more information on the Executive Director role and responsibilities. The deadline for applying for the Executive Director position is Friday, February 5, 2016.
The RMHA 2016 Judge's Clinic will be held on March 26th, 2016. Classroom study will be at the RMHA offices followed by a hands-on clinic at Stoner Ridge Farm in Paris, KY. Lunch will be served. If you are interested in attending the clinic as a judge or spectator, please contact the RMHA offices for more information.
In June 2015, the RMHA membership voted to allow electronic balloting as part of the ballot process according to the revised bylaws of the Rocky Mountain Horse Association under Bylaw Article 2, Paragraph 2.0 (Voting):
“In all matters that are presented to the membership for vote by ballot (as defined in the Rules) a ballot must be sent to each and every Member at their last known address or will be posted on a website that the RMHA deems official for electronic voting, if initiated.”
On May 1, 2016 the official ballot for the Board Elections of the RMHA will be made available to each eligible voting member on an official, secure electronic website OR by posted mail to each member according to their preference. A letter was mailed to each current voting member in December requesting the return of an enclosed postcard to indicate preference for mailed or electronic ballot. If you did not receive this letter, please contact the RMHA office to veriify your contact information.
