Training Opportunities for NRHA Show Secretaries Continue to Grow

For Immediate Release – Oklahoma City, Okla. (August 15, 2017) – The National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) is excited to announce the third opportunity this year for show secretaries to attend an in-person workshop at the 2017 All American Quarter Horse Congress in Columbus, Ohio.

Starting Saturday, October 7, and ending Sunday, October 8, participants can expect to expand their knowledge and skills as show secretaries while networking and trading ideas and tips with their peers. The two-day workshop will be held in the Ohio Expo Center. The first opportunity was held at the 2017 NRHA Winter Meeting in Fort Worth, Texas, and received glowing reviews from both attendees and staff. The second was held in Cremona, Italy, during the 2017 European Futurity.

The event is open to all current NRHA secretaries, those needing to recertify, or those who are interested in becoming certified. Show managers interested in taking part in the seminar are welcomed to attend, as well.

The training seminar is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 7, from 9 a.m. until 4 pm and Sunday, October 8, from 9 a.m. until noon. During this seminar, participants can expect to discuss a variety of important topics for show secretaries including:

  • A look into the show manager’s responsibilities at an NRHA show and how the manager can make the event a fun-filled experience
  • A review and study on how affiliates tie into NRHA shows and what is needed and how to qualify for the Affiliate Regional Championships and the Adequan North American Affiliate Championships
  • Certification to be an NRHA Show Secretary, including in-depth training on management and affiliate involvement
  • A chance to sit down with other secretaries, show managers, and affiliate contacts and share stories and ideas from past experiences
