It is our goal to increase our membership by two-thousand by 2020. Why? As a member-based association the thing we need to sustain the registry and the heritage is — members. The one thing in the world that could ease the strain of shrinking programs is — more members. It is our goal to enjoy an increase this year, and during our membership drive your role as a current member is critical. You are an ambassador. H w?

Of course that won't happen—but if even a third of us brought in one more member each, our possibilities would be drasti- cally improved. As Appaloosa lovers, owners, breeders and enthusiasts we are a community. We are the guardians and the stewards. We celebrated the 80th anniversary of our club, one of the oldest associations of its kind in the world. It will take all of us to ensure that our breed of choice thrives for the next 80.

This has put great strain on both staff and members and caused the maga- zine to roll back a bit. All it would take to ensure better customer service and to guarantee and improve programs is more members. So let's work together and hit 2k by 2020!
