Clubs around the country are great at meeting new Paint Horse lovers and welcoming them to the APHA family. Now, APHA regional clubs can cash for those efforts with the Regional Club Membership Drive, earning up to $2,000 for their club by recruiting new APHA members. The membership drive runs through June 30, 2017, and all APHA regional clubs in good standing are invited to participate.
“I encourage all regional clubs to participate in this great opportunity,” Regional Club Manager Julie Haney-Norton said. “When we get new members, we all win. We really rely on our regional clubs as a grassroots way to bring new members in to the APHA family.”
The Top Five clubs who recruit the most new APHA members will each receive a cash award:
- 1st – $2,000
- 2nd – $1,500
- 3rd – $1,000
- 4th – $750
- 5th – $500
To qualify as a new membership, the individual or entity cannot have been an APHA member in the past two years. All membership types are included in the drive: individual, joint, farm/ranch and youth. A minimum of 25 new memberships must be collected to qualify for the APHA Regional Club Membership Drive contest.
Entering is simple and easy. Submit the application form (link), the club’s membership drive criteria and copies of each new member’s application to:
