Subscribing members of the MFHA who are employed as professional huntsmen, whippers-in, or kennelmen are invited to apply for the upcoming class of the Professional Development Program. Looking ahead to its 12th season, the PDP is a yearlong educational experience (May 1 to May 1) with the goal of encouraging professionalism, improving competence in the hunt field and the kennels and allowing hunt staff the opportunity to network through exposure to other hunts, other staff and their styles of hunting and kennel management. Each participant receives an extensive library of hunting books, audiotapes, DVD’s and pamphlets published by the MFHA & MFHA Foundation that may be kept for future reference. Professional staff participants receive a small monetary grant to assist with their expenses during the course (does not apply to honorary staff).
