Topic: Director Orientation
Billy Smith will be hosting our first leadership exchange for 2018 on June 5th.  You won’t want to miss a discussion on director responsibilities. This exchange will be helpful information for all leaders of APHA.  Even if you are not a director, you may be one day.  Come join Billy for a lively discussion for leaders of APHA.

A “NEW” Experience

The General Store is growing, and with it, evolutionary, new and positive changes have arrived! We would like to invite you to “Experience Your Western Lifestyle” in our new online retail store, the PH Barn Door. Our promise to you is to be able to fulfill all your western needs – from fashion to home goods, to your Paint Horse. We also promise to provide you with unparalleled customer service and super speedy shipping! So, check out our new website at www.phbarndoor.com and enter code NEW20 when you’re ready to check out for a 20% discount off your entire purchase. We thank you for being loyal APHA Members and Customers.  Without you, we couldn’t do what we do best!
The Fort Worth Stockyards currently boats two stores with the name “General Store.” Upon APHA’s move to the stockyards, we would be the third store with such a name. The key element of branding is differentiation. Sharing the same store name with two other stores in the stockyards would not serve to differentiate our brand. Please welcome our new store brand, “The Barn Door.”

Simple Parliamentary Procedures

  • A motion must be made before discussion can start.
  • The maker of the motion has first right to the floor if he claims it properly.
  • You must be recognized by the Chair to join the discussion.

Code of Conduct Tenant #1

Conflict of Interest: A director/alternate/committee member shall avoid a business or personal situation having a potential for conflict with his/her responsibilities to the Association, or which could tend to compromise his/her first duty to further the purposes and policies of the Association, or appear to conflict with them.
