“For us, the newsgroup is a great way to keep track of the horse industry as a whole, in interests, issues, events, you name it.  The seminars are a steal for staff professional development and industry networking, in everything related to putting together our publications, our websites and marketing initiatives. Staff gets exposure to big-picture publishing and media trends and can see them applied to the horse industry, and it’s all at a price we can budget for.   The contest is a way to test ourselves, professionally, to get our work judged and commented on so we can get a good idea of what to work on. It’s really great to see what everyone else is doing, too.” Christine Hamilton, Editor of The American Quarter Horse Journal.

"I had put off joining, but joining paid off very big. It helped us grow our revenues and increase our profits." Cheryl Erpelding, CEO, California Riding Magazine

"There is a certain value in being part of a national organization of people who can relate to what I do, especially since I am a one-person operation. Though I don't access the Web site or use some of the other member services regularly, I know they are available. The seminars are the biggest benefit to me for education and inspiration. I enjoy the chance to travel and to meet the fun and interesting faces that go with the names I see in print all the time--the people who write, photograph and spread the word about my favorite animal, the horse." Sandy Kucharski, Editor, Midwest Horse Source

"AHP membership is directly responsible for several important career opportunities that have come my way. The contacts I've made have been invaluable and the information I've gathered at the AHP seminars has benefited both the publications for which I've worked and me professionally." Jennifer Bryant, Individual Member

"The opportunity to swap ideas on every segment of magazine publishing is unequalled and not available anywhere else." Frank Lessiter, Editor/Publisher, American Farriers Journal

"It's good to associate with others who face the same challenges." Alan Gold, Director of Publishing, Cutting Horse Chatter

"Networking. Education. Resource. Great people. Always a positive experience." Jackie McFarland, EquestriSol

"Networking is by far the most valuable benefit. I can't understand why anyone wouldn't want to take advantage of it." Doug Hayes, Director of Business Development, The American Quarter Horse Journal

"I have received invaluable information on working in the equine industry. The resources are very valuable as well as I really appreciate the returned responses via email. This organization is committed to the success of its members." Karen Pickering, Publisher, Northwest Horse Source

"There are great networking opportunities and good educational offerings at the annual conference. AHP helps me keep up with the industry happenings and who's doing what. It lets me get to know people in the industry on a personal basis and gets my name out there in front of editors and others who might be interested in my services." Sushil Dulai Wenholz, Individual Member

"I don't know the dollar value I would assign to benefits my publication has reaped from AHP membership, but I know it would be at least 10 times the annual dues. The friendly networking with industry leaders alone has been worth that much, not only because of new contacts, but because of new ideas." Warren Wilson, Publisher, California Horsetrader
