TWHBEA Executive Committee Release



Copyright WHR 2007 
      The executive committee of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association
(TWHBEA) met today at the association headquarters.  In the two weeks since their election,
executive committee members have been meeting with TWHBEA staff and reviewing documents to assess
the association’s financial position and determine which issues should be addressed.
        The executive committee took action on the following items: 
- The TWHBEA sanctioning plan has been rescinded, however TWHBEA will continue their status 
as an HIO.
 
- Stan Butt has been hired as interim executive director to transition the duties of Chuck Cadle
during the remainder of his term. Butt was
previously the editor of the Voice Magazine and will
serve as executive director until the position is filled on a permanent basis.
- The executive committee accepted the resignation of Kristi Lane, effective immediately. 
- The executive committee voted to no longer retain the services of attorney Craig Evans. They will 
negotiate with Evans regarding his
position as HIO liaison.  
- TWHBEA will combine efforts with the Walking Horse Owners Association (WHOA) to promote the 
Tennessee Walking Horse Academy Program and host the 2008 Winter Tournaments.  More information on
the joint academy program will be released by WHOA in the coming weeks.
        “This is an important time for our association,” said David Pruett, president. “I wish 
we weren’t in this financial position, but unfortunately we’re having to make some tough decisions. 
I commend every member of this executive committee for their diligence and commitment to putting
our association on a sound financial track.”
        Further information on these decisions will be released at a later date.
