Past Officers and Directors

When the American Association of Professional Farriers was launched in 2011, a very small group had been meeting via conference call and, on a limited basis, face-to-face to discuss the opportunities of forming a new association.  From July 2011 through January 2012 (and beyond), the Board held weekly calls.

While many members of the initial Board of Directors were willing to serve as officers, it did not take long for the Board to recognize its founding president - Jeff Ridley CJF TE APF, was unanimously elected to this position.

In this space, we salute our Past Presidents, Vice Presidents, Treasurers and Directors:
