The American Quarter Horse Association is an organization that works because of its members. Now is your chance to make a difference and submit items to be considered by AQHA standing committees at the 2022 AQHA Convention February 25-28 at the South Point Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

Each spring, AQHA holds a convention to review AQHA rules and policies. During the convention, member-submitted rule changes and suggestions are also reviewed. AQHA wants to hear any suggestions you have to make AQHA membership, programs and services reach their fullest potential.

AQHA members have until December 31, 2021, to submit items for the 2022 convention. AQHA standing committees meet at the annual convention to consider the submitted items.

“If you believe there is a need for a rule change, we encourage members to submit items earlier than December 31 to give Association staff, committees and councils more time to prepare materials to make an informative decision at the convention,” said Chad Pierce, AQHA interim executive vice president and chief legal counsel.
