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 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.
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 APHA literature to be distributed at club-sponsored events or area trade shows and equestrian fairs. All you pay is shipping! Simply fill out this online form.
Regional clubs may purchase advertising in the association’s official publication, the Paint Horse Journal, at a 25% discount. Contact Sales for more information or to place an ad.
If your club is representing 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. Better yet, download banner graphics from the Banners/Signs page and have your own banner made to use at future club events!
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 e-blast 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. See form for more specifics or contact us with questions.
Postcards and Bulk Mailing
Another way to take your show promotion to the next level 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.
