It’s hard to believe the competition season is half over and we are making plans for the NIHJA banquet that will be held in November! With that in mind, there are a couple items we are asking NIHJA members to help with.

  • NIHJA is currently looking for division sponsors for year end awards! Sponsorship is $100 and helps provide quality prizes to competitors. Please contact Alexis Bumbar or Kristie Hohol if you are interested in sponsoring.

  • NIHJA is also looking for items for the raffle table that is displayed during the NIHJA banquet. Want to help but need a suggestion? Get together with a couple friends from your barn put together a barn basket! Come up with a theme and fill a basket with items which represent your theme. Please contact Nancy Zeis or Jess Battaglia if you are interested in donating an item.

  • NIHJA Members – it is important to keep your information updated with the NIHJA secretary. It is especially important should you change trainers to update who you are currently training with. This will ensure your points are applied correctly. Should you have a change in trainer, address, email, or phone number, please contact Kristie Hohol with any changes. There is no fee for updating/changing information. NIHJA would like to make sure all members are receiving updates and receiving their points.
