ISG Liaison Report: ‐ Adele Furby • ISG Annual Meeting Report: Very good simultaneous translators and overall the meeting was very well organized and run; Main things that NASS was interested in was the proposal ISG put in about new societies in countries that already had a society; NASS proposal was that if this was allowed, there should be guidelines (suggested by NASS) – that’s what happened. Entire ISG approved suggestion to allow more than one society in same country; ISG President Ahmed Al Samarraie went over suggested guidelines and presented them very well; Last two (statutes and min. numbers of horses that are not already reg. with existing societies) – no one argued over these points. ISG had formal vote. Two delegate societies voted as noted (Austrian‐ abstained and Sweden ‐ No) otherwise almost unanimously approved. Overall, a positive development.


• PShR gave presentation (Linda Rudolphi) via PowerPoint and can be found on PShR website. Presentation was given in a negative format against NASS; the PowerPoint can be seen on their website; One delegate took issue
