2nd March 2012 : Something really boring

If you are a member of the Welsh Pony and Cob Society you will probably know that, for the last few years, the management and operation of the Society has been a shambles. Hundreds of thousands of pounds have been wasted on legal fees. Big changes are needed to ensure that the Society is run economically and effectively. We need dramatic improvements in administration, communications and promotion. There are too many real and imagined conflicts of interest which can only be addressed by independent disciplinary and judging arrangements. I am standing in the election to Council because I believe our members and Welsh ponies and cobs deserve better. I think I can make a difference. Before I retired I worked as a director of an international accountancy organisation and have wide business and charity governance experience. When you have finished the horses for the day please drag yourself away from the new Journal or even my website for a moment. I would really appreciate it if you could vote for me: Anthony Booth, on the white ballot paper. A pre-addressed envelope has been provided but, I am afraid, it needs a stamp. The closing date is 28 March but please do it now. If elected I promise to keep on taking photos and inputting extended pedigrees on the website as well.
