The American Horse Council and the Coalition of State Horse Councils are seeking to establish contacts with individuals in key states for the possible formation or activation of a state horse council to help with grass roots advocacy. AHC President, Julie Broadway stated, “As you can imagine, there are often state legislative/regulatory issues that we need resources residing in the state to help us gain intel on and/or help us advocate for change.”
The stronger our network, the more influence we have in getting things accomplished. Unfortunately, there are currently only 26 states with a state horse council. States we are seeking to establish contact with include AR, CA, CO, CT, FL, IN, LA, MA, ME, MS, MT, ND, NE, NH, NV, RI, TN, TX, UT, WA, WV, WY – Al & HI.
We would like to invite persons in these states to a town hall meeting on “National Nonprofit Day” August 17th at 2:00 PM ET to learn more about this opportunity! Topics include:
- Why every state needs state advocacy for equine industry
- How to form a state horse council
- How to sustain/grow a state horse council
- Introduction to three states that have successful councils
- How to leverage the Coalition of state horse councils & American Horse Council
- Resources available to help you get started…., and
