Resolution Deadline is Fast Approaching

Resolutions are due August 15 th  (postmarked/electronic transaction dated) and may be submitted by any Member Organization (Adult Members), any standing Ad Hoc Committee of AHA, by a Regional Board of Delegates or by the Board of Directors of AHA. The AHA President may also submit resolutions.

Proponents must now state whether a resolution is “extraordinary” or “standard” when submitting resolutions. An extraordinary resolution is defined as one that affects the health, safety or well-being of the horse and/or rider; affects the financial well-being of AHA, and/or Member Organizations; or creates a severe hardship or gross unfairness to the Association’s recognized events or involves other compelling circumstances clearly specified.

If a resolution is submitted as extraordinary, it must clearly define how it meets the “extraordinary” criteria. It will then be reviewed by the Agenda & Resolutions Committee to determine if it meets the necessary criteria. Upon approval, the effective date will be December 31 of the year adopted or upon approval by USEF/EC, if applicable.

A resolution deemed as “Standard” will upon passage, have the effective date of December 31 the year after adoption. (i.e. adopted November 2020, effective December 31, 2021)

A 2020 Resolution form is available online here.
