Chairmen Meeting 2011

March 3 2011 | Chairpersons

The chairmen present gave a presentation about the internal status in their organisation and a status of actions taken in the member countries in order to support the welfare of the horse
The FEIF Board has been in contact over the past two years with the Minister of Agriculture about funds for the work of FEIF. It has so far not clarified which possibilities might arise for FEIF. The FEIF Board has decided not to seek for sponsor support from companies where it could be in conflict with the interest of the member countries.
The president informed about the WorldFengur agreement, which now confirms, that all FEIF-member countries can provide free access for their members – this a very important step forward for FEIF.
A working group has been working on a proposal for new statutes for FEIF and the first draft was presented. The work based on the new statutes will continue specially with focus on the arbitration system within FEIF.
Another working group presented a set of recommendations to FEIF on what FEIF can do to support the member countries – with special focus on communication, education, the welfare of the horse and financing of the work in FEIF. A report from the meeting will be presented to the Board of FEIF, and the Board will come back with a proposal how to continue with the proposed topics.
The Board presented a draft for the establishment of an international FEIF Endowment Fund and a FEIF Patron Scheme. It was supported to continue with these ideas ? with the establishing of the Patrons Scheme as first priority.
