2019 Annual Meeting – Holland

| May 31, 2018

It’s never too early to start thinking about the KWPN-NA Annual Meeting! Plans are already underway for the 2019 KWPN-NA Annual Meeting, which will take place in Holland. Below, please find more information as well as a tentative schedule. We will also be sending out a survey via e-mail to get an idea of interest and attendance, so please check your inboxes! (If you do not receive the email, please contact us or scroll all the way to the bottom of this page for the link.)

 

Greetings KWPN-NA Members and enthusiasts! 

We hope you are all excited about attending the upcoming KWPN-NA Annual General Meeting at the 2019 Stallion Show in DenBosch Holland!

 In the interest of notifying the K on the number of seats to reserve for the show, please provide your response on if you will attend and to which events. We have identified daily rates for attending the Stallion Show in addition to a variety of exciting farm visits. That way you will be able to attend the discipline of your choice and not pay for the full show.

 Below is the hotel information, preliminary Agenda and cost structure referenced in the survey. Please provide your answers to the survey questions by June 10, 2018.

Thank you in advance for your participation and your time! We are looking forward to a fun and educational experience for all attendees! Hope to see you in Holland!

 Best Regards,

The KWPN-NA AGM Committee, Board of Directors, and Members Committee
