The AEC is next up in a series of 11 town hall meetings being hosted around the country this year. The town hall meetings are a continuation of the Eventing 2016-2026 Summit which was held at the 2015 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention. Those in attendance will be invited to discuss the issues facing the sport and their recommendations on how the USEA can address them. Members of the USEA Board of Governors, USEA staff and local leadership will be present to listen and take notes on the input provided. All town hall meetings will be free and open to all people with a stake in U.S. Eventing.
AEC Town Hall:

The town hall meetings will be structured in such a way that all those present will be given the opportunity to speak in an open and respectful forum. All input will be compiled by the USEA for future consideration and/or implementation.
Topics discussed during the town hall will most likely include:
o Eventing Costs
o Growing the Number of Eventers
o 21st Century Sport/Business
o Calendar of Events
o Organizing Events
o Other points that members feel need to be addressed
A report of all the information gathered throughout the year will be given at the 2016 USEA Annual Meeting at Convention in Hollywood, Florida on December 7-11. The report will also include a status update on the proposals put forward during the Eventing Summit 2016-2026.
