The WHTA met on Friday, April 18, 2014, at their headquarters in Shelbyville, Tenn. At the meeting, a list of  all current members of the Senate and House of Representatives by State was distributed to the membership. The list included each elected official’s phone and fax numbers.

President Mickey McCormick encouraged each trainer to take advantage of the two-week legislative hiatus to personally contact these individuals.

There was discussion of the possibility of forming a trainers’ union encompassing all breeds so that each breed would have the support of other breeds, giving them a bigger voice.

Secretary Marcia Allison recorded the minutes as President Mickey McCormick conducted the meeting.
