AQHA is an organization that works for its members. Each spring, AQHA holds an annual convention to review member-submitted rule changes, appoint new AQHA directors, induct new members into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame and present year-end awards. The 2013 AQHA Convention is March 8-11 at the Hyatt Regency Houston in Houston. Register for Convention Registration for convention can be done in two easy ways. Members can register online or by filling out the registration form available in the January issue of The American Quarter Horse Journal.

AQHA’s standing committees meet at convention to consider these submitted items. For a list of standing committees, log into the AQHA Member Services Area.
