2015 Members of the Year
Congratulations to Nicki Butler and Vicki Hodel
The WDCTA State Board voted that both Nicki Butler and Vicki Hodel deserved to be recognized for their contributions to WDCTA. The awards were presented in March at the Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet.
Nicki has been a State Board member as a Member at Large for several years, including helping tremendously with the USDF Instructor Certification Workshops and Pre-Certification. Additionally, Nicki has generously donated her time and knowledge to ressurect the Southwest Chapter's Mini Event which has ran successfully again for 2 years. Nicki always has a cheerful can-do attitude and brings wonderful energy to WDCTA.
Vicki helped to re-start the Central Chapter in 2012 and has served on the State Board for several years. Vicki has contributed much of her free time organizing clincs and seminars for the Central Chapter, recruiting new WDCTA members, assisted with the planning of the WDCTA Annual Meeting, and has recently lead the effort to bring WDCTA back to the Midwest Horse Fair. Vicki attends the Wisconsin Horse Council meetings to represent WDCTA. Vicki projects a warm, cheerful attitude to our new and existing members.
