TWHBEA to Elect 27 Directors



Candidacy Declaration Deadline August 1, 2014

As per the direction of the TWHBEA Bylaws, prior to May 1st of each year a determination is
to be made as to the number of directors to be elected from each state, province, country or
region, based on the number of members from each.

To qualify for election to the Board of Directors, a person must have been a dues paying
member of the Association for at least the past five (5) consecutive years and a director may not
be serving a Horse Protection Act suspension for thirty (30) days or longer from the USDA.
Each potential director must have had a least one horse duly registered with the Association for a
period of one year, commencing as of August 1st of the preceding year to be elected, and must
keep at least one horse continuously registered throughout the duration of the election period and
the term. For horses registered in the name of a Corporation, the name of the owner of record on
the registration form or on the transfer form will be honored. A horse registered to a married
couple will qualify one spouse to run for election. Horses registered to any other partnership will
not qualify any of their owners for election.

No person shall be eligible to be a director for more than two (2) full consecutive terms;
however, a director may serve more than two (2) nonconsecutive terms.
