President's Perspective - January, 2015

Friday, January 30, 2015 - 10:53am

 

Dear Pyramid Society Members and Egyptian Arabian Enthusiasts:

January's always a good time for reflection; not only for looking back at past accomplishments, but more importantly, an avenue for building an even- more promising new year. With that in mind, I'm pleased to point out a few important accomplishments in 2014 and touch on plans for 2015 as follows:

We had a very successful fiscal year-end, thanks to the success of the Gleannloch Project. These funds will be held in reserves for board-approved projects which overall benefit our Society and the Egyptian Arabian horse world-wide.
We produced an incredibly-impressive 2014-2015 inaugural Yearbook, working with Arabian Horse World. It's been a long-time goal of our Society to produce one comprehensive annual "go-to" publication, which highlights our horses, our members, and our activities. On behalf of the entire Society, please accept our gratitude for your support of it. In addition, hats off to the untold efforts of our PR Committee, the staff and the Arabian Horse World staff in putting this together. Efforts have already begun to continue building on this successful formula for 2016. And one additional note. If you're planning an open house in 2015, what more impressive publication could you have on hand for your attendees than this Yearbook? Current members may order complimentary copies of the Yearbook, and pay only the shipping charges. Contact The Pyramid Society office for further details. (It's another great member benefit.)
The reinstatement of Egyptian-Sired classes at the 2015 Egyptian Event, with their own Championships. Look for the 2015 EE Schedule on our website in February.
Another exciting happening in 2015 includes our National Breeders' Conference entitled "The Art of Breeding Straight Egyptian Arabian Horses" and scheduled for the weekend of August 21st in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In the Yearbook, Keri Wright, our Education Co-Chair, recapped the successful conference in Egypt which served as the catalyst for this one. Further details will be included in both our Chariot and our website. Mark your calendars; you won't want to miss it.

Thank you again for your ongoing support of our Society. I look forward to seeing everyone at this year's Egyptian Event as we pay tribute to our "Stallions: Kings of the Nile."

Sincerely,

Bob Miars

President
