SHOW To Update Industry Stakeholders



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The SHOW HIO will host an industry stakeholder meeting on Friday February 18, 2011 at 5:00PM CST in the Blue Ribbon Circle Club on the show grounds of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tenn.  The meeting will focus on the issues surrounding the 2011 show season, an update from the SHOW legal advisors and the letters seeking decertification of the industry HIOs that have not accepted the mandatory penalties.

The meeting will feature a presentation followed by a question and answer session.  Dr. Steve Mullins, President of SHOW HIO, and Frank Eichler, attorney for SHOW will lead the session and discussion.  All industry stakeholders are welcome to attend.

The weekend was chosen in conjunction with the SHOW HIO Judges’ School (February 18-19), WHTA Youth Council Trainers vs. Trainers basketball tournament (February 18) and the Champions of the Future Colt Preview (February 19).  “We are hopeful that with the other events in Shelbyville that weekend will be convenient for industry stakeholders to attend this important meeting,” said Dr. Mullins.
