Fora working under WBFSH

This site will seek to support the different collaborational fora under WBFSH.

Through the menu on your left you will find the fora that have been initiated by now, and below you will find information on the background and how to start up a working group on items of common interest.

Background of the WBFSH Project Fora Framework

A new initiative by 2016 is the Project Fora Framework. It is managed by the Department Internal Cooperation with the purpose to ensure that the WBFSH fulfills its mandate to engage member stud books in fora, by sharing expertise and through collaborative projects. The Department’s main activity is to stimulate cooperation among member studbooks using regional fora.

A forum may be initiated in two ways:

Members forward a project to the Department or the Department may suggest a project based upon discussion with the membership. In both cases, once reviewed and finalized the Department presents the project to the Board for approval.

The Department maintains close contact with each forum; it ensures appropriate mentorship by the Board, participates in meetings when feasible and responds to minutes. The Department will also monitor existing long-term collaborations and ensure that annual progress reports for all fora and projects are presented during the General Assembly. Through these efforts, the Department will advance the ability of sport horse stud books to work for the benefit of the breeders they serve.

Below please find the guidelines of the fora framework as well as the application form to be filled in and sent to member of executive committee, Edward Kendall on ekendall@yourlink.ca
