AQHA Press Release


Amarillo, Texas - The annual MBNA America® Youth Excellence Seminar and American Quarter Horse Youth Association Convention is scheduled for July 8 - 10 at the Amarillo Civic Center. The seminar features Sean Covey's "7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens" and focuses on the election of next year's AQHYA leadership team.

AQHYA elects 33 youth officers and directors internationally to serve as public relation agents for the American Quarter Horse Youth Association. These officers and directors are responsible for presenting awards at the Youth World Show and assisting the American Quarter Horse Association in recruiting members. This dynamic leadership team also gives workshops in their respective regions to promote their passion for the American Quarter Horse.

"The youth officers and directors are very influential in our Association," said Bill Brewer, Executive Vice President. "These positions are prestigious because they are representing 30,000 other youth in the American Quarter Horse Association."

The candidates for the officer and director positions will give speeches, open to all voting and non-voting members of the conference, on Friday, July 9. The closed election will follow. The newly elected officers and directors will receive visors at the Youth World Show and then receive belt buckles made by Montana Silversmiths at the end of their term.

Besides electing new leaders, the goal of the conference is to shape better leaders for tomorrow. More than 250 youth are expected to attend and will participate in leadership activities, team building projects, and convention sessions.

The first convention session will feature keynote motivational speaker Jep Enck who will address the human aspect in building exceptional teams. With an M.S. from Colorado State University, Enck has more than 20 years of management experience and is known for his energetic and engaging speaking style.

All participants in the MBNA America Y.E.S. and AQHYA Convention will receive a coupon from Wrangler jeans and may use it during a scheduled trip to Cavender's Boot City on Friday evening.
