To our valued members:
Island Horse Council would like to announce the appointment of our new executive board members, in accordance with our current constitution and bylaws, effective until the AGM in the Fall of 2018.

President – John McAssey
Secretary – Florine Proud
Treasurer – Jeannette Doucette
EC Liaison – Martie Murphy
Media – Amy Herring

IHC is currently in search of a Vice President, as well as two Directors at Large to join our team. For those interested in these positions, we will be accepting nominations until May 14, 2018 with a decision being made shortly thereafter. As a volunteer based organization, we are always looking to add new volunteers to our committees and events, as well as helping to support our clubs and members with volunteers. For those interested in an open volunteer option or a specific committee, please forward your information to us at any time at office@islandhorsecouncil.ca .

Please note, a nominating committee will be created in the coming months, and the membership will be asked for nominations for each Executive position. All executive positions will be elected in by the membership at the 2018 AGM.

IHC will be scheduling a special meeting in the weeks to come to review our financial situation with our members, as requested by the membership at the 2017 AGM, including 2017 financial statements. This notice will be sent out to our members directly.

The IHC Executive and Board of Directors would like to sincerely thank our membership for being involved and providing us with valuable feedback. We have gone through a challenging period and we will be working diligently as a united team to review our current status as an organization, to answer questions our members have and to provide our members with a solid organizational plan going forward.

Our goal is to have transparent governance and communication with our membership, and we will be focusing on building IHC to better suit the needs of our entire membership. This will not be an overnight process, and we welcome your feedback to help us develop the programs and support system that you, as members, want to see. IHC will also be further developing our constitution, bylaws and policy & procedure manual to better serve our membership.

Thank you for your time, patience and continued support as we regroup and build an improved provincial sport organization for the equestrian community and its members on Prince Edward Island.

Sincerely,
IHC Board of Directors
