LEWISBURG, Tenn. (October 13, 2006) -- The Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association announced today the discovery of two clerical errors related to the elections for the 2007 National Board of Directors.

Based on the TWHBEA by Laws, determinations on the number of National Director seats available are based on the membership numbers for that state as of May 1 of each year.  For the state of Tennessee, it was initially determined that three (3) National Director seats would be available and this information appeared on the ballots when in actuality the correct number was five (5).  A Director from New Jersey with a term expiring in 2007 moved to Tennessee and was incorrectly included in the number of Directors currently seated in the state of Tennessee.  A Tennessee Director that was an Alternate in the 2003 elections assumed a vacant seat in 2004 with a term expiring in 2006 but was incorrectly listed as having a term that did not expire until 2007. 

The election results will be available later next week but the TWHBEA has reviewed the election procedures with legal counsel and the independent accounting firm, Cook & Company, to ensure that the results are fair and accurate and that the correct number of Directors will be seated in each state.
