Written by Andrew-Rossi on January 7, 2019
The Cody Stampede Board issued a press release on Friday afternoon regarding the upheaval in the volunteer committee that has caused concern for those in Cody’s rodeo community.
At their board meeting on January 3rd, officials say that some internal changes were made to the governing body that coordinates the rodeo events in Cody. According to the news release, the adjustments include new office management, changes in the board of directors, and a change in leadership. A new acting president will be in place until formal elections can happen for the 2019 officers. The news release did not identify who the acting president is, nor did it note which board members have stepped down.
Additionally, the Stampede Board has adopted the PRCA’s Safe Sport Policy, which bans sexual misconduct, physical misconduct, bullying, harassment, and hazing. The Board has elected to add a ban on discrimination to their policy as well.
The board issued an apology to anyone directly impacted by the events in Las Vegas that spurred these changes, adding that they will also be undergoing a financial and internal systems audit.
The Cody Stampede is planning to celebrate its 100th year this summer.
