Annual Membership Meeting
The ATBA will conduct its Annual Membership Meeting on April 24th, 2015, at Turf Paradise Racetrack in Phoenix, AZ. The no-host bar will be from 5:30 to 6:30 pm, and the dinner will start at 6:30 pm. All members in good standing will receive a written invitation by mail. As required by law, the Officers of the organization will report to the membership, and last year’s financial report will be available for review. The newly elected Board members will be introduced, and the entire Board of Directors is looking forward to good discussions with all members, sponsors, and guests.
Immediately following the Annual Membership Meeting, the ATBA hosts an Award Dinner for members, guests and sponsors, honoring the Arizona Champions of the previous year. The event traditionally takes place in the Turf Terrace, a private conference and banquet room with an outdoor terrace located above the Clubhouse level.
Providing a spectacular view of the track, this location proves the perfect venue for the award ceremony: Many of the equine athletes presented with a trophy on that evening have started their careers here, are still racing, or have offspring competing at Arizona’s biggest racetrack. And all of the Arizona Champions are featured with video re-plays of their greatest wins that are broadcast over 18 monitors in the Turf Terrace.
The Awards Dinner also serves as the social focal point for all members of this organization, their friends and family. It is the place to celebrate the Thoroughbred breed and the accomplishments of Arizona’s outstanding race horses and breeding stock. And it is an opportunity to enjoy excellent food served by Turf Paradise’s Chef, as well as share fun entertainment and horse stories with like-minded breeders, owners, trainers and racing fans.
