Benefits available to regional clubs from APHA
Being associated with a chartered Regional Club provides several benefits. The most important benefits are intangible. Belonging to a regional club gives members the opportunity to be associated with a world-wide organization that shares the common goal of promoting American Paint Horses. By working within that organization, individuals may have a large and positive impact on the future of the breed.
Regional Club Membership Drive
APHA is offering a great cash opportunity to Regional Clubs for their efforts recruiting new APHA members. APHA will award $5,750 cash to 5 split between the top five clubs that bring in the most new APHA members. Prizes will be awards to 1st – 5th place. 1st place will receive – $2000, 2nd place – $1500, 3rd place – $1000, 4th place – $750 and 5th place – $500! Find out more.
Regional Clubs often find themselves in need of liability insurance for many of their events during the year. APHA has made special arrangements with Specialty Program Insurors, Inc., to offer protection to clubs for a number of events, including horse shows and trail rides. For more information, clubs may contact this company at (800) 338-3313 and mention that they are an APHA Regional Club.
The Association offers several promotional benefits to approved regional clubs through the APHA Marketing Department.
APHA Promotional Merchandise
Regional Clubs can purchase items from the APHA General Store at a 20% discount. A regional club may order any item from the General Store catalog, available upon request from APHA or online at apha.com/store, and apply the discount to the total purchase price of the merchandise.
The Association will provide upon request a quantity of literature to be distributed at club-sponsored events or area trade shows and equestrian fairs. Order online or email.
Regional Clubs may purchase advertising in the Paint Horse Journal at a 25% discount. Contact Sales for more information or to place an ad.
If your club is representing the APHA at an event and you would like an APHA, banner or official APHA signage, simply request in writing what you would like, or describe your event and we can help you. Include the dates and details of the event.
APHA is proud to have representatives out promoting Paints, so let us support you as you support us!
Free Membership List
Another major benefit of being a chartered club is the privilege of access to APHA membership lists. A regional club officer may request one free list per year. A club may request a list for the state or states (if the club covers one or more states) under its jurisdiction. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on obtaining a membership list.
Mass Marketing Email
A great way to promote your club’s show is to let APHA send an email to the members in your area through our mass marketing email service. Complete this online form and after show approval, we will do the advertising for you. Contact us for more details.
Postcards and Bulk Mailing
Another way to take advantage of APHA is to take advantage of our postcard printing and bulk mailing service. We can custom print oversized postcards to promote your shows, trail rides, elections or membership drives! Contact us for pricing.
