LEWISBURG, TN – A concerned TWHBEA member asks a simple question of Sir Walt Chism who serves King Steve “thanks for ur note” Smith:
SIR WALT CHISM -TWHBEA SR. VICE PRESIDENT – IN CHARGE OF DAY TO DAY OPERATIONS
FROM A CONCERNED TWHBEA MEMBER
TO: SIR WALT CHISM
SUBJECT: What Is Wrong With A Stamp??????????
To the TWHBEA officers and Executive Board,
I just read your latest lawyers letter regarding the recall procedure.
Help, did I miss something here?
Does chemically altering one’s hair color to Blonde fry brain cells or is this true?
As a TWHBEA member I am able to :
Pay my dues by mail (meaning USPS)
Register TWH horses by mail.
Transfer ownership of TWH horses by mail.
Enroll in TWH award programs by mail.
Buy subscription to Voice magazine by mail.
Order TWHBEA gift shop items by mail.
Vote for my area director by mail.
As a current paid up member I am not required to travel to Lewisburg, Tennessee as lovely as it appears to be there, to transact any of the above named official TWHBEA business UNLESS YOU DECIDE I MAY VOTE TO RECALL A DIRECTOR THAT I VOTED IN BY USPS MAIL! Then suddenly it becomes necessary to ride, drive, fly, swim to show up in person at TWHBEA headquarters?
If you can’t stand against soring, then at least the Association should be neutral and allow the members to sort it out.
Travel 2,400 or more miles one way to vote when a 50 cent stamp on an envelope could deliver a secret ballot to an unaffiliated CPA firm for counting. Spending thousands of member dollars on unnecessary legal fees you created. What kind of governance is that? How about UNFAIR!
Please explain, Mr. Smith and or Mr.Chism, how a director can be voted in by above named process but you two can alter that proceedure on a whim to make it
a time and financial hardhip for out of state members to vote in a recall election.
I noticed the directors contact information is no longer posted. Members must deal with the executive committee only? Ok then, here.

Let’s be clear, this meeting was called by TWHBEA members from California. The Tennessee law, that is the basis for asking for a meeting, specifies the location of the meeting. Mr.Smith nor Mr. Chism have any discretion in the matter.
