By Carol O’Meara, Rules and Specs Chair

Several Bylaws and Rule Changes were passed by the Board of Directors at their October meeting. An amendment to the Bylaws will streamline the process for making rule changes which are required to be in compliance with USEF/USHJA/Zone 8 Specs. Those changes can now be recommended by the Rules and Specs Committee and approved by the Board without going through the normal rule change process.
