USHJA Affiliate Town Hall Meeting with Mary Babick
When: June 11, 2020
Time: 1:00 p.m. MT
Discussion of opening up after COVID-19 suspension.
MHJA Suspends Recognized Events until May 31st
Due to the current coronavirus pandemic, Montana Hunter Jumper Association, in affiliation with USEF and USHJA, will be suspending all events and competitions until May 31st. At that time, the suspension will be reviewed and deference will be given to CDC and Montana regulations, as well as USEF/USHJA directives. Suspensions will not exceed 30 days and upon the 30th day, will be reviewed for continuation. During a suspension of events and competitions, MHJA will rate no shows nor endorse clinics or other events. This includes, but is not limited to, advertising on the website or any other MHJA social media site. In addition, deposits will be refunded to any show manager whose show is affected by a suspension. We will, however, do everything possible to reschedule any cancelled shows. Show managers choosing to move forward with their shows must inform participants that no MHJA points will be awarded to participating members.

MHJA Board 2020 Elections
The end of the 2019 Show Season saw several board members’ retirement. Marilyn Frame, Alia Driscoll, and Gayl Russell chose not to run for the MHJA Board again, although Gayl will continue on for a year in the Past President role. Marilyn has spent many years in the Banquet Coordinator role, as well as filling the Show Manager Liaison position. Alia produced a quality newsletter and worked to update the rulebook. Their service to the MHJA Board is appreciated and they will be sorely missed.
Newly elected Board Members, Addison McColl, Amy Smith, Pamela Rozell, and Saraes Decker Reyna (Junior), join returning members Heather Davies, Monika Frame, Sarah Broussard, and re-elected member Allison Heidmann to round out the 2020 MHJA Board.
