The Homes for Horses Coalition is proud to announce its 2015 Conference on September 25 and 26 in Irving, TX. This is the only national conference specifically designed for horse rescues and sanctuaries, and those in the equine welfare and protection community. Sharing support, collaborating and learning are the goals of the conference. Cindy Gendron, Coordinator of the Coalition, said, �With the concerns and challenges of our members in mind, we have created a conference that addresses important topics such as improving adoptions through innovative marketing, working with law enforcement to advance equine welfare, increasing fundraising by developing major donors, and engaging communities with successful outreach.� There will be plenty of time for networking and learning from peers which is always a highlight of this type of gathering of like-minded people.
Because of the generosity of the Coalition�s sponsoring organizations, the conference is offered at the minimal registration cost of only $25 for members and $75 for non-members. �That�s an amazing price for this caliber of training and I hope that many take advantage of it,� says Gendron. Our members are spread out all over the country and this is a wonderful opportunity for them to come together and share knowledge and community, and recharge for the good fight to save our nation�s equines.� You can find more information and register online at http://tinyurl.com/ouqhkhg.
In addition to those operating equine rescue and retirement facilities, members of the Coalition include organizations involved in government policy affecting horses and other equines, and professionals in the field such as veterinarians and attorneys. To have this cumulative expertise in one place at one time is a unique experience and as one attendee put it last year, �All rescues should find a way to come. It is an amazing networking opportunity with people on the same mission.�
