Starting in January 2017, the American Horse Council (AHC) will be offering a new membership option available to students only.
The student membership will be available to both high school and college students, and membership will be subject to verification; only full-time enrolled students are eligible for this special student membership.
“The involvement of youth in our industry is critical to its future. We felt that it was important to expose students to the issues in Washington, DC and how the federal government can impact the industry they love,” said Julie Broadway, AHC President. “The AHC is excited to offer this new membership and we are looking forward to helping educate the next generation.”
The student membership will be available for $25, and includes more than $1,000 worth of benefits:
“It’s more important now than ever to get the youth in the industry involved. Organizations such as AQHA, NRHA, and the Arabian Horse Association have wonderful programs and memberships available for their younger members, and we felt it was time for the AHC to do the same,” said Ashley Furst, AHC’s Director of Communications.
If you, your organization, school, or university is interested in helping promote this student membership, or if you have any questions about the membership, please contact the AHC at 202-296-4031 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
