OQHRA Annual Election of Directors

OQHRA will hold its annual election of directors beginning in the month of September. 

The OQHRA board is responsible for many decisions that affect your ability to participate in Oklahoma racing.  If you want to have an active role in the future of racing it is time for you to run for a seat on the board.  

The  election is for the six elected director positions with terms expiring in 2018.  This is your opportunity if you are a resident of Oklahoma and involved in Quarter Horse, Paint, or Appaloosa racing and would like to be nominated for a seat on the board.  It is pretty simple, just make sure your membership in OQHRA is current as of September 1, 2018 and send a request in writing (email, text, or via regular mail) to add your name to the nomination ballot.  You must be a resident of Oklahoma.   

Directors with terms expiring are:  Leann Burns, Ed Melzer, Spence Kidney, Mike Howell, Lake Newcomb, and Cheryl Pevehouse.   They are all eligible to run for re-election if they so choose.   

There is one position for an out of state director, and that deadline for nomination is also September 1.  The current out of state director is Ben Hudson and he also is eligible for re-election.  

Trainers are eligible and encouraged to seek election to the board, along with owners, and breeders.
