Re: [RC] [DR] Motions before the BoD and member discussion - Truman Prevatt

Here goes.

There are some important items in motions to consider:

1. Spending significant amounts of AERC funds - for example up to $5K per region for projects for the education and benefit of AERC and endurance riding. Up to $45K per year nationwide.

I would sure like to see a program defined with goals, requirements, etc., and a PLAN before we talk about funding anything.

2.  That there be an AERC only email list. What should the goals of the AERC 
web site be?
Sponsorship/member interaction oriented or record keeping/rules oriented?

What is the cost including life cycle cost. Without the cost I'd say no.

3. To require rider and/or owners of horses, as a condition of entry in AERC sanctioned rides, which die within 30 days after participation in an AERC sanctioned endurance ride to waive any rights to hold treatment records of the treating veterinarian confidential and which require the rider and/or owners of any such horses which die within 30 days after participation in an endurance ride to immediately give notice of the death to the AERC and co-operate in it's investigative procedures.

This is a good idea, however, again this needs to be part of a program. What are the goals of the program? How much will it cost? What will it be used for? How will it be implemented? Where is the plan? Without these other things in this will probably just be another rule/policy that won't be enforced.

4. Changing the format for the ride time for a LD ride from the current 6 hours including
reaching criteria to 6 hours to reach the finish line. Placings still determined by
reaching criteria after the finish line.

It's not broke so don't tinker with it. It will fix nothing and give ride managers more gray hair.

While the H&W award has a lot of history - the motions above have a far greater impact on all of you.

Let's hear from you. The meeting is only 4 days away.
