Letter From KWHA to Groover

Editor’s Note: The following is a letter sent to us by KWHA concerning the announcement of the July 3 WHTA meeting.



Letter From The Kentucky Trainers’ Association


Dear President Groover:


            I have been asked to correspond to you on behalf of the Kentucky Trainers’ Association by President John Tudor with regard to the special called general membership meeting of the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association, Inc., presently scheduled for July 3, 2007, at 3 p.m. in Shelbyville, Tenn., As you are aware a vast majority of the membership of the Kentucky Walking Horse Trainers’ Association are also dual members of the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association, Inc. It is our understanding that the purpose of the special called meeting of the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association, Inc. for July 3 is for the purpose of approving and adopting an operating plan in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Obviously this is an extremely important event with which the general membership should be involved.

            However, to date the Kentucky members of the Tennessee Walking Horse Trainers’ Association, Inc., have not received notification of this meeting. The bylaws of the Walking Horse Trainers’ Association, Inc., require that any special called general membership meeting requires a 10 day notice. The lack of notice of this special called meeting or at the most the untimely notice of this special called meeting has the effect of denying the Kentucky members of your association and any other long distance members of your national association from having input or a vote on this most important matter. Furthermore, if the meeting is in fact conducted it will be in violation of your corporate bylaws. Any action that requires the vote of the general membership must be acted upon in accordance with your corporate bylaws. Failure to do so will result in any such action being void, voidable, or suspect subject to challenge in the judicial system.
