An organization is only as good as its leadership and our organization is no exception. The Board of Directors are elected to not only represent their area but also the overall mission of the American Shetland Pony Club, Inc., and its entire membership. The President and 1st Vice-President and 2nd Vice President are officers elected by the Board of Directors to oversee aspects of the organization as described in the Rulebook. These three, along with additional appointments made by the President, form the executive committee. The National Home Office, located in Illinois, includes the Director of Operations and office staff - it is considered the international headquarters of the organization.
Board of Directors
Being an international organization, the geographic regions of the American Shetland Pony Club, Inc., are divided into 8 areas. Each area elects two members (a Shetland seat and an Open seat) to represent them on the Board of Directors. Specific qualifications, election process, terms and other information can be found in the Bylaws of the ASPC Rulebook.
The Executive Board consists of the President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, and two other board members.
