The Utah Dressage Society (UDS) is looking for additional Board members!

There are two positions currently available - Secretary and Director of Events. We would love to find some folks who are willing to be part of a team of dedicated individuals who are passionate about educating, promoting, encouraging and inspiring UDS members and the general public about Dressage.


Looking for someone who has experience and proficiency in an administrative role taking and maintaining meeting Minutes, scheduling meetings, recordkeeping, organizational skills, and using Google Platform (Docs, Sheets, Meet, etc.). The best candidate for this position will also have a track record of being collaborative and communicative when working in a group, and can be seen as someone who helps to keep others on track.

Director of Events:

Looking for someone who has experience with event planning and coordination, and who is able to lead in a way that others can follow! The Board has committed to further engage with the membership going forward and in addition to the largest event - the UDS Year End Banquet - other smaller events need to be planned and scheduled. All UDS events will need help from the rest of the Board as well as the membership and it will be key for this position to be seen as an organized, detail-oriented, event planner. Additionally, this individual will need to be someone who seeks thoughts and ideas from others, as well as contributes expertise.

Other benefits of being on the UDS Board include:

- belonging to a legacy of Board members who have worked tirelessly to perpetuate Dressage in Utah

- special consideration for some scholarships/grants

- volunteer hours for lifetime

These two positions would be joining the following, current Board Members:

Lindi Kopecko - President

Ginny Hsu Sorenson - Vice President

Mindy Simmons - Dir. of Education

Sandra Rivero - Dir. of Membership

Jasmine Beckstead - Dir. of Communication

Susan Helier - Treasurer

Ammie Lords - Dir. of Competition

If you are interested in either or both of these positions, please review the information above and email for the job description and further conversations.

If you are interested in helping UDS, but are unable or unavailable to commit to a Board position, we still need your help on Special Projects! Your efforts will be greatly appreciated and may count as Volunteer Hours (required for Scholarships and Awards).

PLEASE consider supporting UDS with some of your skills and expertise. PLEASE consider giving some of your time and energy by being a Board Member, or to volunteer for one of the special projects. You can email for more information.
