*** Renew Your NCQHA Membership Early for 2016 ***

If you are not a lifetime member of NCQHA, your membership will expire on December 31, 2015. You can renew early and it will be posted as a 2016 membership.


Your state show points for year-end awards won't count until the date of the postmark on the envelope. A reminder, if the horse is not in your name, the owner has to be a member as well in order for points to count.


Looking forward to everyone joining again in 2016. There are a lot of exciting things happening next year. As always, we appreciate your support of NCQHA.
