Requirements for International Affiliate Status
International Affiliates must submit Articles of Incorporation,
By-Laws (or other documentation accepted by that country) and a complete
membership list when they are first seeking affiliation. Until recently,
the ApHC required no other correspondence from these clubs, yet we allowed
them to operate under the name of the ApHC. The following is what was
proposed and passed at the ApHC Board of Directors meeting in July of
1999 outlining what all affiliates must agree to and submit yearly to
remain a viable International Affiliate of the ApHC. To go into effect
January 1, 2000. Any current and future affiliates wishing to be recognized
by the ApHC must follow all ApHC rules. Any affiliates not wishing to
follow ApHC rules, may not be recognized by the ApHC and shall not register
horses, hold ApHC-approved shows or events, or do business in the name
of the Appaloosa Horse Club.
