AQHAThere are times in every business’ life cycle that require a look at the organization’s product and service offerings and how it is structured. Many times, these reviews result in having to make some difficult decisions. Over the past few months, AQHA has been doing the same, and this week announced the first steps in a reorganization to address current business and financial needs, as well as to begin preparing for the retirement of AQHA Executive Vice President Don Treadway Jr. 

Last week, the AQHA Executive Committee named Trent Taylor to the position of acting chief operating officer and treasurer. In that position, Taylor will take a more active role in the day-to-day management of AQHA as Treadway focuses on the Association’s strategic plan, business development, Foundation gifts and securing some expiring AQHA corporate partnership agreements.
 
Also, Tom Persechino will assume the duties for AQHA’s marketing, communications and publications entities as the transition of shows and judges to Pete Kyle continues to move ahead. Other changes will be announced as they become final.

  1. I hope this reorganization is more beneficial then the changes of late. My membership fee has doubled; and I will not pay that ridiculous fee. So you force more members away from the organization and wonder why you have financial problems. How about you get back to the basics of the organization and leave all the other crap to those who wish to destroy their organizations.

  2. I have 2 horses that I love. I am a senior and trying to show one this year. We are doing well but there are not enough in the classes to get any points. I agree that stall and show fees are out of sight for the regular person,{I am not Wealthy} so don’t know how long that will be possible or cost effective to come away with nothing for all the expense and effort. I would also like to comment that judges should not be rude to amateurs even if they don’t travel with the Big name trainers. Our money is worth the same dollar amount. Anything you can do to help the cost will increase the numbers . Thank you.
