January Events - 2017

We invite you join us in New York for the 2017 MFHA Annual Meeting and festivities, beginning on Thursday evening with the Masters Dinner, the Annual Meeting and Friday evening's not-to-be-missed Ball. This year's event promises to be a very special occasion: Our President, Dr. Jack van Nagell, is handing over the reins after his three-year term to Tony Leahy, and Dennis Foster is stepping down after 24 years as Executive Director.

We are thrilled to have Major Tim Easby, director of the UK's Masters of Foxhounds Association, as our featured speaker at the members' meeting. New Masters will also benefit from a special seminar focusing on their concerns and responsibilities; Marty Wood, MFH Live Oak Hounds, will address this group. And as always, the Ball at the Pierre Grand Ballroom will be a high-energy conclusion to the business meetings. Make plans now to reserve rooms at the best rate

Attire: Meetings - jacket and tie; Master's Dinner - formal, men will be in scarlet; Masters' Ball - formal, (men in scarlet or tux) white or black gowns are traditional.

**Online Reservations are closed**
Please call the MFHA office to inquire about availability
