    JanetGeorge - thank you so much for sharing this information. It is important that all members are informed of the facts. Has there been any update regarding the minutes that were promised from the BHS?

    BHS Meeting Update

    I find it too sad that BHS believes their number one priority with horse welfare is castration clinics. This was confirmed by the Director of Welfare at the AGM. How can the UK in the 21st century still have such major welfare issues? 200 horses?! BHS please put UK horse welfare back on your...

    BHS Meeting Update

    The changes to the board and the nominations committee are as clear as mud. 'Could' and 'that's our intention' were phrases used regularly. But when the detail started to unravel it was evident that things had not been clearly thought through nor had they been formally documented. For instance -...

    BHS Meeting Update

    Let’s be open with what happened BHS. An adjournment would not have been needed to be called if the BHS had provided enough clarity on the changes to the constitution in advance of the vote. As it was, there were still plenty of questions and concerns unanswered by the end of the meeting. As...

    BHS Meeting Update

    You might be interested to know that out of the 101 votes that were carried out in person at the AGM, over 30 votes came from BHS staff and trustees. According to the Chief Operating Officer there is no conflict of interest. Well done for winning an adjournment BHS members!

    Wishing all of us good luck for tomorrow's meeting. Regardless of what happens - thanks to those that have taken the time to vote by proxy or in person. To quote Thurgood Marshall: Where you see wrong or inequality or injustice, speak out, because this is your country. This is your democracy...

    This does not surprise me. Each employee is a member so the CE will be relying on these votes to get the proposed changes passed. Therefore please keep spreading the word everyone. The British Horse Society needs genuine votes to decide it's future

    Smart move by the British Horse Society. This makes it look like it's a charity that values its members and listens to them. However it's further evidence of wasting charity money. All they had to do was publish this properly in the pages of British Horse which goes to every member- as...

    Very well said Honetpot To add to this 1. No one knows the true total membership figure. Various numbers are banded around but with an unreliable membership database (which has cost the British Horse Society over £1million so far and with rumours it will cost over £1million to fix), how will...

    Hi The Xmas Furry The Regional emails are sent by the Regional Managers. Unfortunately they are kept in the dark as much as members are. I believe the AGM and the changes to the constitution are something that the CE was hoping to keep under the radar on her quest for ultimate power and control...

    Please, please, please pass on to all members about the new proposed changes to the constitution that the CE wants to implement. It will enable the CE to do anything by any means. She will control the trustees and prevent the members from having a voice. This is the final nail in the coffin of...

    Who is reviewing the exit interviews? Who is taking the key learnings from why so many people are leaving the British Horse Society? The BHS will claim there are good and bad leavers and that it is a perfectly normal staff turnover. However talk to any recruitment agent and they will quickly...

    Not heard anything yet but if there is going to be one it has to be announced in the magazine and by email so keep your eyes peeled! Check out the below: Following a vote by members at the 2009 AGM, the Society no longer holds automatic Annual General Meetings. Extraordinary General Meetings...

    "Employee turnover is costly to businesses, with the average cost of replacing an employee hovering around 20 percent of that person’s salary. When turnover is high, those costs can skyrocket. However, high turnover is usually an indication that there are problems with the management of the...

    :eek: Wow HectorTTerry. These are shocking facts. It's sad that the British Horse Society denies there are any issues with staff turnover because until they admit there is an issue, this will not be tackled. "Employee turnover cost is usually defined as the cost to hire a replacement employee...

    Hi Orangehorse I don't think anyone here is disputing that the British Horse Society does do some good work. The reason for this thread is to highlight how the charity achieves that work. To highlight that the annual donations and income of 11.2 million pounds from people might not be used as...

    Interesting point to note - my post from yesterday (post 246) says it was 'Last edited by a moderator: Today at 11:01 AM'. I think (hope) they edited to remove the annoying advertisement. It means that H&H can edit our content if they want to. However, despite the British Horse Society insisting...
