Chad Lausen, WCFA President

The WCFA welcomes Chad Lausen as the new WCFA President!

The following was posted November 6, 2023 by Chad on his Facebook page:

I am honoured and privileged to accept the role as President of the Western Canadian Farrier’s Association!

I learned about 30 seconds into the meeting that I am a terrible politician lol and I am definitely going to break a few rules, but I have a lot of energy and passion for the farrier industry and want to make a lot of good things happen! I am thrilled about the new elected members and we have an amazing board of individuals stepping up to make this association a super power! Looking forward to having Alexandra V Hamilton as vice president! She is a good friend and probably the most organized person I know. Thank you to the outgoing staff, Will A Clinging and Russell Floyd Awcf who have done a great job of getting the association to where it is and giving us a great place to launch from!

I know in the past many executives have been frustrated when people complain about the association to everyone except the people who can make the change. I ask that if you have a complaint or concern about the WCFA please send me a PM and I will take it to the board so it can be discussed.

Thank you to all the farriers in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba for trusting me with their association!
