Manitoba Horse Council welcomes Diane David to role of Executive Director
Winnipeg, Manitoba (October 4, 2021) — Join us in welcoming our new Executive Director (ED), Diane David.
The selection committee and MHC board of directors chose Diane for her extensive experience working in the horse industry and for non-profit organizations. She joins us from the Whitemud Equine Learning Centre Association in Edmonton, where as Executive Director she expanded the scope of the centre from a small members-only organization into a community-based organization providing inclusive, accessible recreational programs and services for all ages and abilities. The board appreciated Diane’s proven ability to engage stakeholders at all levels, manage budgets and open up new revenue streams. In this role, Diane worked closely with the Alberta Equestrian Federation to promote the benefits of membership and in support of their initiatives including show sanctioning, training, biosecurity, insurance and other horse welfare programs. Diane has relocated from Alberta to Manitoba to take on the ED role and steward Manitoba Horse Council (MHC) into the future.
