Clubs / Affiliates : International: Requirements

 

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.

In accordance with Rule 400.H, any group wishing to become an International Affiliate of the Appaloosa Horse Club must have on file in the ApHC office the following:
1. The affiliate’s Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws or other similar documentation accepted by the originating country. Bylaws must consist of a “purpose” which states, “to cooperate with and aid in every way possible the programs and functions of the ApHC.” Please see
Document #1 for regional club’s example.

Document #2 for form.

After the above requirements have been submitted to the ApHC office, the ApHC Board of Directors will review the information at their next regularly scheduled Board meeting in March or July.

In accordance with rule 400.H (Document #4), to retain International Affiliation, each Affiliate must submit annually:
