The American Horse Shows Association (AHSA) today issued the following reminder regarding deadlines for rule changes according to Article 342 of the AHSA rules. Standard or normal rule change proposals submitted by the general membership of the AHSA must be received by June 1, 2001. Article 342 reads, in part, as follows:
All proposals for rule changes from the general membership must be submitted to the office of the AHSA in writing on the official form for proposed rule changes provided by the AHSA (the "official form") by June 1, 2001 for forwarding to the Rules Reference Committee. Rule changes from individuals must be submitted by a proponent named on the proposal regardless of any committee positions held.
Rule Change Proposal forms are available at www.ahsa.org/rulechange, including a new on-line form. Additionally, an instructional brochure for the preparation of proposals is now located at the same web site address. Alternatively, members may contact Marie Murphy (859) 225-6922 for a printed copy of the Rule Change Proposal form.
Standard rule change proposals must be received from AHSA staff and AHSA committees and councils by September 15, 2001, the latter accompanied by minutes or certification with appropriate signatures.
There are 64 standard rule change proposals going forward for consideration thus far in 2001. Those, and all subsequent proposals, will be posted shortly on the AHSA web site.
