The Marana Western Heritage Arena is operated by the Town of Marana Western Heritage Committee Inc., but is not a department of or a branch of the Town of Marana.  However, the Town is supportive and helps with some funding of expenses in order to keep the arena rental fees affordable to all groups. The Heritage Committee Inc.  is an Arizona nonprofit corporation and has 501c3 IRS tax status for donors and sponsors.  The Heritage Committee is organized with an executive board that consists of;

President Dan Post

Vice-President- Clay Parsons

Secretary/Treasurer Kathy Clark

Board members Arnold Burrell and Jon Post

The Executive Board operates with sub-committees who are responsible for different venues.  Each sub-committee can have their own officers and directors.  The executive board supports and holds each committee accountable and responsible for their events.  Teri Murphy is the President of the MJRA and has total responsibility for that association and is accountable to the executive board.  The Executive Board Treasurer audits the finances of the MJRA so sponsors and donors are given 501c3 tax receipts. 

In the future, other sub-committees will be organized.  Proposed committees are publicity/promotion, sponsorships/fundraising, membership/volunteers, arena maintenance, rodeo, special events (tractor pulls, etc), clinics, /schools, youth equestrian activities, practice nights.

Future plans for the arena include fencing the entire perimeter, additional bleachers and bucking chutes.

The calendar and scheduling of events is presently managed by the executive board and may be contacted by e-mail.

The executive board and sub-committees all serve as unpaid volunteers, if you would like to help out in any of the proposed sub-committees, please contact Dan Post at dpost@westernheritagearena.com .
