In accordance with Bylaws amended at the USEF Board of Directors mid-year meeting, the Federation's governance structure has been modified to create a more agile and efficient organization.
During the 2014 USEF Annual Meeting, currently underway in Lexington, Ky., the new structure has been populated. The Administration And Finance Working Group, FEI Affiliates Working Group, High Performance Working Group and National Affiliates Working Group have transitioned to become the Administrative And Finance Council, International Disciplines Council and the National Breeds And Disciplines Council, respectively.
Effective Jan. 9, the Board Of Directors has been streamlined from 54 members to 19. The following individuals have been elected or appointed to the USEF Board of Directors:
Chrystine Tauber, president
Ellen Di Bella, vice president
Bill Hughes, secretary/treasurer
Derek Di Grazia
S. Tucker Johnson
A chart depicting the new structure is available on the USEF website.
