The American Junior Paint Horse Association is on the hunt for young leaders for the 2019 AjPHA Board of National Directors!
Do you know a youth who is passionate about Paint Horses? Do they always lend a hand at local horse shows? Are they the first to welcome new participants at club events? If this sounds like a youth you know, encourage them to apply to be a 2019 AjPHA National Director!
What is an AjPHA National Director?
That sounds AWESOME! So … how does someone get started?
Apply to be an AjPHA National Director! Youth must be a current AjPHA Member and age 17 or younger as of January 1, 2019, to apply. Interested Youth can apply through their regional club with the help of their club president or youth advisor (adult coordinator) OR they can submit an Individual Director Form. Each state, province or country has an allotted number of Youth able to serve their areas, based on the membership number from that location.
What do I need to do?
If you are a APHA/AjPHA Club President or Youth Advisor, complete the “Regional Club Nomination Form” and submit to AjPHA Director of Youth Activities, Christine Gillett by January 1.
If you are an AjPHA youth member who isn’t being nominated by a club, complete the “Individual Director Nomination Form” and submit to AjPHA Director of Youth Activities, Christine Gillett by January 1.
AjPHA encourages all Youth to become more involved with our organization! An AjPHA leadership role is a great way to meet new friends, enhance leadership skills and build your resume.
