||THP Participates in Rural Texas Summit
On February 19-20, the Texas Horsemen's Partnership (THP) will have a
presence at the Office of Rural Community Affairs' inaugural Rural Texas
Summit in Austin. The THP display booth, sponsored by Compass Bank, will
be present at the event, and THP staff will be available to give information
about our association and what it does to interested federal, state, county
and local officials, community leaders, and rural stakeholders.
According to the Office of Rural Community Affairs, the Rural Texas Summit
is designed to facilitate group discussions related to rural issues and
develop innovative rural legislative initiatives and policies.
A presence at the Rural Texas Summit allows the THP to educate officials
and interested parties from many areas about why the THP exists, what
it does, and how important the horse racing industry is to the agribusiness
economy in Texas.
