TWHBEA to Elect 33 Directors Candidacy Declaration Deadline August 1, 2017
As per the direction of the TWHBEA Bylaws year a determination is to be made as to the number of directors to be elected from each state, province, country or region, based on the number of members from each. This year per direction by the Executive Committee those numbers were determined at our largest member total on December 31, 2016.
To qualify for election to the Board of Directors, a person must have been a dues paying member of the Association for at least the past three (3) consecutive years and a director may not be serving a Horse Protection Act suspension for thirty (30) days or longer from the USDA. Each potential director must have had a least one horse duly registered with the Association for a period of one year, commencing as of August 1st of the preceding year to be elected, and must keep at least one horse continuously registered throughout the duration of the election period and the term. For horses registered in the name of a Corporation, the name of the owner of record on the registration form or on the transfer form will be honored. A horse registered to a married couple will qualify one spouse to run for election. Horses registered to any other partnership will not qualify any of their owners for election.
No person shall be eligible to be a director for more than two (2) full consecutive terms; however, a director may serve more than two (2) nonconsecutive terms.
