The American Saddlebred Horse Association has announced the election of six new members to its Board of Directors, who will join the Board at the United Professional Horsemen's Association & ASHA Conference in January 2019.
“We are pleased to announce such a dynamic group of business leaders and American Saddlebred professionals that will help us continue our momentum in accomplishing our mission statement," said David Mount, ASHA Board President.
The following are the newly elected members for a term of three years.
Nancy-Leigh Fisher, Helena Moreno and James Nichols were elected to the ASHA Board of Directors for a term of three years, starting in 2019. Also re-elected were current ASHA board members Candida Covino Aversenti, Kristen Cater and Martin Schaffel.
ASHA offered its members the opportunity to vote for new directors either electronically or by the traditional paper ballot during the month of November in 2018. The ballot count was certified by Strothman + Co, and members of the ASHA Board for accuracy.
“It is our objective to create an election process that is fair, and the nominating committee led by the chair Joan Lurie, did an outstanding job providing candidates with a strong background that will enhance our efforts," remarked by Terri Dolan, executive director of ASHA.
Returning members of the 2019 ASHA Board include Allen Bosworth, Sandra Currier, Elisabeth Goth, Emily Lee, Joan Lurie, David Mount, Joe O’Brien, Evan Orr, Tandy Patrick, Donna Pettry-Smith, Jenny Taylor and Dr. Owen Weaver.
New officers for 2019 will be elected by the Board at its January 2019 meeting in Palms Springs, California.
The ASHA Board bids farewell to Board Members Leslie Rainbolt-Forbes, Holly Nichols, and Cheryl Innis. The Board sincerely appreciates their services to the breed.
