2017 USEA Area Town Hall Meetings

By Shelby Allen - USEA Staff

All Areas are encouraged to host a town hall meeting once again! Come share your opinions and suggestions on the issues facing our sport. Town hall meetings are be free and open to all with a stake in U.S. Eventing.

This post will be updated to reflect the exact time when it is announced. Light snacks and water will be provided.

The town halls 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:

  • Eventing Costs
  • Growing the Number of Eventers
  • 21st Century Sport/Business
  • Safety
  • Calendar of Events
  • Education
  • Organizing Events
  • Professionals
  • Amateurs
  • Other points that members feel need to be addressed

In 2016, following the Sports Summit hosted the year prior, each USEA Area hosted Town Hall style meeting to allow members to discuss the issues they feel are most important. Last year’s meetings lead to a flourish of discussion and idea sharing. Because of this, the USEA is encouraging Areas to continue to host Town Hall meetings in 2017.

Information gathered from these discussions was gathered and presented at the 2016 USEA Annual Meeting and Convention. This resulted in a project tracker, where every single recommendation put forward in 2016 has been logged in addition to the responsible parties, categories and progress reports. You can view the entire document here.

A Day in the Life with USEA Intercollegiate Member Hannah Warner

Hannah Warner wears many hats: student at the University of Kentucky, UK Eventing Team President, competitor, and head groom for Alexa Ehlers. Fitting in all of her roles and responsibilities into her day-to-day life can be a challenge, but it is a challenge that Warner finds rewarding. The college senior is working towards a business degree through UK's online business program, so Warner is able to get creative with her schedule to pursue all of her academic and eventing related goals.
