AHSA Executive Director Resigns

Kevin T. Carlon, Executive Director of the American Horse Shows Association since March 1999, has officially resigned from his position. Carlon resigned shortly after expressing concerns of inconsistencies with the Associationâs personnel procedures and professional standards. No more details about the resignations are being released due to AHSA policies.

Six officers of the AHSA appointed by President Alan F. Balch will comprise a search committee to fill the position. The search committee will be co-chaired by Vice President Judith F. Werner and Secretary Linda L. Allen.

The AHSA Assistant Executive Director-Finance, Lori Rawls, has been named the Acting Executive Director until a permanent candidate is instated. Rawls is continuing to supervise the accounting and financial aspects as well as filling the interim position. Rawls was hired in 1998 as the first employee to the Lexington Branch Association. She helped to start the Associationâs move from New York City to Lexington, Ky.
