Region 6 Report
Director: Donna Longacre, WA
2013 Spring Executive Board Meeting, May 3 – 5
A flurry of activity best describes the status of Region 6 in the early months of the year. Both large and small GMO's are busy making plans for competition, education, and outreach events and there is a decisive effort to cooperation and coordinate activities.
Everyone is feeling the promise of spring and a healing market.
Communications: The launching of the Region 6 Website has been long coming and met with much hoopla (not only by me) by many regional chairs who have been forwarding information to fill the site. We are thrilled and thankful to Christine Montfort who designed the site with the assistance of Lori Fleming who has been administrating our Facebook page the last few years. We are looking forward to adding a calendar and the every popular classifieds soon. Facebook, a newsletter, and periodic conference calls as well as the Region's Annual Fall Mini-Convention will round out the year's plans for improved communications.
JuniorYoung Riders are up and running under the guidance of Kate Shoemaker and new volunteer coordinator Jodi McMaster. Jodi has great organizational skills and we are thrilled to have her on board with this program.
Important Information on Region 6 fee
Dear Region 6 Competition Official and GMO Contacts:
Effective immediately, competitions will no longer be permitted to collect a mandatory Region 6 participation fee from exhibitors entering USEF licensed/USDF recognized competitions. Collection of mandatory fees by a USDF region is no longer permitted due to a USEF rule change that took effect on December 1, 2012 to GR1210.14.
