Lloyd Landkamer Show Management Development Fund

 

The goal of the Lloyd Landkamer Show Management Development Fund is to provide financial assistance to show management (to include managers and/or secretaries) to aid in their development and to help them move up the levels of management. Beginning grants will typically range in the amount of $250 - $500, to be used for costs associated with completing mentoring and apprenticeship requirements, including expenses for travel to shows. Attendance at other educational events, such as USDF Show Management seminars, will be considered as well.

The online application form and all required documents must be submitted to TDF on or before March 1st.

Apply through The Dressage Foundation

Message from the USDF Region 2 Director

Hello fellow Region 2 members. I like you am totally ready for Spring. This time of year we go from frozen ground to mud. I'm not sure which I prefer other then mud takes longer to remove. I guess this weather is what makes us appreciate Summer and Fall.

The USDF Annual Meeting in Las Vegas was another great event. As always, we held 2 Regional Meetings where we had 39 members in attendance. There were a lot of good ideas discussed including the development of a USDF Region 2 saddle pad for all Region 2 competitors who qualify for the National Finals (within our region) and compete at the National Finals. To make this happen we need one or more individuals to financially suppot this effort. If you or anyone you know is interested in helping to make this idea a reality, please have them contact me.

If you have not attended in the past, 2016 may be an ideal location for many of our Region 2 members. The USDF Annual Meeting and Convention will be in St. Louis, MO November 30 to December 3, 2016.

During the month of April, I will be attending the USDF Spring Board Meeting. If you have specific topics or concerns that you would like me to discuss with the Board, please send me the topics, with details, via email.

I would also like to extend a warm welcome to Mia Johnson who has volunteered to work with the web site to expand the information contained on the site. Mia may be contacting you or your GMO for photographs, clinic information and schooling show schedules. We want the Region 2 web site to be the "go to" location when you need information about the Region.


Keep warm, keep learning and keep riding.

regards,

Ken Levy
USDF Region 2 Director
