Foundation Board of Directors

When the American Association of Professional Farriers (AAPF) was created, we determined that the best form of government for the association to be recognized by the Internal Revenue Service would be as a 501(c)6 "trade" association.  Using this classification, it would allow all payments made to the association to be 100% deductible by the farrier and supports as "costs of doing business" on their state and federal tax returns.  Subsequently, when the Canadian Association of Professional Farriers (CAPF), the International Association of Professional Farriers (IAPF), and the International Association of Professional Farriers - Australia (IAPF - Australia) were launched, they too were recognized as "trade" associations.

After five years of operation, it was determined that we should look at creating a 501(c)3 "charitable" organization.  In 2019, the Internal Revenue Service approved our application for such an entity - AAPF IAPF Foundation Inc.  The IAPF Board of Directors made the decision to transfer the educational initiatives (including our Educational Partners, Hoofcare Essentials clinics, and scholarships) to the foundation.  In 2020, we plan to concentrate more on how this foundation can benefit long-term educational initiatives for the farrier industry.

The Board of Directors is the governing body of the AAPF IAPF Foundation and is charged with establishing direction, setting policy, and providing leadership to the Foundation. The 2020 Board of Directors includes:
