When the AAPF, and subsequently the CAPF and IAPF, was created, we included the Board of Directors as the governing body of the association(s).  This Board of Directors currently includes the nine (9) Directors, the four (4) elected Officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer and Immediate Past President), and the Executive Director. 
In the development of our Bylaws we also created a category of membership for “Honorary Members”.  These Honorary Members may be an individual, company or organization which has been nominated by a member and approved by a majority vote of the Board of Directors.  Honorary Members pay no dues, have no voting rights, and may not hold office.
In reviewing the organizational charts of other organizations we have determined that we needed to include another level of structure in our associations.  The “Board of Trustees” is comprised of current dues paying members (i.e. Regular or Associate) who are in a position to offer the AAPF guidance, financial or other forms of support. 
The honorary position of being a member of the Board of Trustees will provide the associations with “goodwill ambassadors” throughout the farrier and equine industries.  In addition, the Board of Trustees has been assigned the task of personally interviewing (either in person or through electronic means) all candidates for the position of Director for the Board of Directors.  The purpose of these interviews will be to confirm with the potential candidate that they are well aware of the commitments in time, talent, and financially, of being a member of the Board of Directors.

Any member of the association may nominate fellow members to become members of the Board of Trustees.  Initially, Trustees will serve a three-year term but their terms will automatically renew unless they wish to resign.  To nominate a member, please contact either the Chairman, Vice Chairman or Executive Director.

The Chairman of the Board of Trustees is the Immediate Past President.  The Vice Chairman is the Vice President of the Association.  Current members of the Board of Trustees include:
