HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
My wish for all of Region One is that 2016 will be a year filled with fun, laughter, and prosperity!
The first thing I want to do is thank all of you for electing me as your Region One Director. Mary Ann is gong to be a tough act to follow as she did an outstanding job as director.
I am not quite sure what to say, in this my first letter, to all of Region One, other than to ask for all of you to help me make my term as director a good one for all of us. We are all horse lovers and lovers of the Arabian Horse in particular. One of my goals is to get the word out to all the other horse lovers in Region One that don't own Arabians that this should be their horse of choice. There are lots of ways that this can be done, but I can't do it by myself. I am going to need the help, support and ideas from all of you. In my book there is no idea that is to outland-ish. We need to start thinking out of the box and find innovative ways to get the word out to the general public about our wonderful horses.
For those of you that were not able to go to the convention, one of the major things that was passed was the reduction of the club members for each delegate. Instead of the number of members being 50 per delegate it will be 35 members per delegate. This new ruling will go into effect in December of 2016.
Now before you all think that I have lost my mind and don't realize that we are almost through the 1st quarter of the year you need to remember that we did not have a newsletter at the beginning of the year as Malissa's computer crashed and she lost all the stuff for our first newsletter of 2016. So rather than reinvent the wheel I decided to just go with what I had already written and just add this little bit to it..
I look forward to working with all of you in the year ahead.
Director, Region One
