Strong support for Hannoveraner Verband structural reform


With an overwhelming majority, the delegates and voting members of the Hannoveraner Verband decided on complete structural reform for their studbook. In fact, over 90 percent of those present at the general assembly were in favour of a corresponding revision of the Verband's statutes. The Hanoverian breeders and their horses are at the forefront of interest in the planned structural reform with the goal of allowing broader participation by the breeders in the studbook's decision-making processes. Specific expertise will be integrated into the various committees, and the delegate system will be deliberately retained with responsibilities clearly assigned. The six-member Presidium and the newly created Supervisory Board, comprising five members, will be elected by the Assembly of Delegates. The positive decision for structural reform was preceded by intensive and constructive discussions, which had already been held at district association level since November. As a result, suggestions from breeders have been taken into account for the draft statutes.

Hans Henning von der Decken, Chairman of the Hannoveraner Verband, thanked the structural commission for their goal-oriented work. At the Assembly of Delegates on April 27th, elections for the committees will be held. An election commission has been appointed for this purpose, and until the final registration of the statutes, the current board will remain in office.
