International Membership Summits

The AQHA International Department conducts bi-yearly membership summits in each of its four international membership regions: Australasia-Africa, Canada, Europe, and Latin America.  AQHA leadership, staff and clinicians travel to the membership regions in order to connect with leadership and members of the international affiliate organizations in that region. During the summits, AQHA provides updates on business activities that are most impactful for international members, as well as updates regarding international member programs that add value to engagement with AQHA and its affiliates. In addition to the business summit, AQHA provides a no-cost educational day to provide high-quality education on a topic important to the region, such as judge education or show management.
 
Short and long-term goals for improving international member service and adding programs of value for international members, as well as business plan goals for the affiliate organizations, are also discussed. Stay tuned for the next membership summit coming near you! Contact international@aqha.org for more information.

Discipline-Specific Summits and Seminars

Discipline-specific summits and seminars are hosted in membership regions with a growing American Quarter Horse industry related to a specific discipline or aspect of the industry, such as racing, showing, ranching or breeding. Designed to be a benefit for current AQHA members, these summits and seminars encourage AQHA member engagement, provide AQHA sponsored education, and provide an opportunity for business discussions specifically aimed at moving that aspect of the industry forward. International affiliates are also invited to contact international@aqha.org to discuss a discipline specific summit or seminar in their membership region.
