2022 CTPA Board Nominations
|November 30, 2021
Much Gratitude to the CTPA Family... I, for one, am feeling very thankful for everybody that came together to make the 2021 season possible. Thank you to our promotors that allowed us to have as many shows as we did. Without the Fast Cattle Ranch and the Rolling H Ranch, we would have never been able to have a full season.
A big thank you is in order for those that helped CTPA through sponsorship:
Mike's Fence Center
Pinnacle Architecture Inc.
RE/MAX,Key Properties and Arcco Instrument Corporation (Timo Buccola)
KMR Trailer Sales
Coastal Farm and Ranch
Melissa Clark and C21 Realtors
Flying Flower Ranch.
I also want to thank the Board for 2021, thank you for putting the members and the Association first. Most of all, I want to thank the members for sticking with us through what turned out to be a very challenging year. Without a faithful and growing membership, none of this would be possible. In 2021, CTPA sponsored and sanctioned shows paid out over $200,000 and gave away over $50,000 in awards. Thank you to all of you that made this possible.
It's with excitement, enthusiasm and optimism that we move into 2022. I truly believe that we only scratched the surface of what's possible in 2022. The current Board has worked with an open mind to make changes and wants to continue to evolve as we move forward. The most important aspect of continued growth is through a revolving board. For CTPA to reach its potential, we need new board members, a board that represents the regional diversity, as well as making sure that the varied ratings are also represented.
New members bring fresh ideas while returning Board members hang on to traditions. Both are needed. I want to encourage members to get involved and participate at the organizational level. The survival of CTPA is completely dependent on having a revolving board. The time requirement is very minimal. For the 2021 season, we met one time per month for two hours at a time, all by Zoom.
For the 2022 elections the CTPA Board has moved to a third party to run our elections. We want to make sure to the members that this process will protect your privacy during both the nomination and the voting process. A link will be provided on our website and Facebook that will allow a secure and private process.
December 1-7 will be the Nomination Period. December 11-15 will be the voting Period. Board Positions Open for 2022: Two-year Commitment -Executive Vice President (Ratings Committee Chair) -2nd Vice President (Promotions) -Treasurer One-year Commitment 6 Positions open for General Board Member 2022 can be an amazing year for CTPA but we desperately need some new faces and a complete Board to make it happen. Please consider joining us in 2022.
