Mason Phelps Jr. Appointed to Serve on the Board of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce

Wellington, FL - April 30, 2009 - Phelps Media Group, Inc. is pleased to announce that Mason Phelps, Jr. has been selected to serve on the board of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce Equestrian Committee. The Equestrian Committee is comprised of a diverse group of dynamic individuals that have experience in various equestrian related businesses and non-profit organizations, and Phelps will bring an extensive equestrian knowledge to assist in furthering the committee's goals.



Mason Phelps, Jr. is a lifelong horseman who has participated in many aspects of the equestrian world including as a rider/trainer, event manager, governance leader, charity organizer, and

multi-media executive. Phelps is the president and founder of Phelps Media Group, Inc., one of the foremost equestrian public relations firms in the world, and has been instrumental in the industry through his philanthropy and service on many boards and councils.

"The equestrian community and Mason Phelps are synonymous," said Wellington Chamber of Commerce President Diana Tashman. "We are delighted to have Mason on the Equestrian Committee and I think that his expertise in the equestrian community, not just in Wellington, but nationally, will be a great asset to the Wellington Chamber as our membership grows."

Tashman added, "Because of the major impact that the equestrian industry has on the Wellington economy, Mason is the perfect catalyst to assist the Wellington Chamber's efforts with this group. We really want to give more exposure to the equestrian community, and that is where his expertise will come in."

The Equestrian Committee's goals include developing interest and participation in the equestrian sport in Wellington, providing events and seminars for business and equestrians to meet and play, thus increasing business opportunities between the two groups, establishing interactive relationships with equestrian organizations (for-profit and non-profit), increasing membership of equestrian related businesses, updating the Committee Website so it may be used as a resource, providing effective and timely communication to the Board of Directors, committee members, chamber members and community members when required, and improving community lifestyle and prosperity by implementing the above goals.

Phelps will use his expertise to assist the committee in realizing those goals and is looking forward to putting his knowledge to good use for the Wellington community.

Phelps fully supports the goals of the Equestrian Committee, and due to the extensive traveling that the equestrian sport involves, he has selected Julie Tannehill to serve as his alternate in the event that he is away on business at any time during his service on the committee.
