USEF Seeks Nominations for Independent Directors Seats on the Restructured USEF Board of Directors

RELEASE: October 24, 2013
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: USEF Communications Department

Lexington, Ky. - During the USEF Mid-Year Board Meeting held on July 22, 2013 in Lexington, Kentucky, the Board of Directors voted to amend Bylaws and change the Federation's governance structure. Effective January 9, 2014, the Board of Directors will be streamlined to 19 members from the current 54. A chart depicting the new structure is available here.

The new Board of Directors will include the three national officers; President Chrystine Tauber, Vice-President Ellen DiBella, and Secretary/Treasurer Bill Hughes.

The new Board will also include four athletes. The body of eligible athletes have elected four from amongst them to occupy those Board seats in January 2014.

The current Administration & Finance Working Group, FEI Affiliates Working Group, High Performance Working Group, and National Affiliates Working Group are in the process of transitioning into the Administration and Finance Council, International Disciplines Council, and the National Breeds & Disciplines Council. The Administration & Finance Council will elect one representative, and the National Breeds and Disciplines Council and International Disciplines Council will each elect four representatives to the new Board. The election of these Board representatives will occur at the first meeting of the Councils on January 9, 2014, during the USEF Annual Meeting.

At its first meeting in January, the new Board will elect two Independent Board Members.

Independent Board members are described as "individuals who have no material interest in the Federation, in that within the five years preceding the assumption of the Director seat, he or she has not been employed by the Federation; has not served as a consultant, supplier or service provider, or Officer of the Federation; has not served as a competition licensee; and no member of the individual's family has served in any of the foregoing positions."

Nominations for these two Independent Board members can be submitted online no later than November 15, 2013 using the USEF Nomination Form at www.usef.org/nominations/Default.aspx.
