I just saw this on Eventing Nation:
US Equestrian will consider proposed amendments to bylaws at its 2022 Mid-Year Meeting, including one proposal to designate Modified instead of Preliminary as the lowest USEF-recognized eventing level. You can read more about the proposed amendments here: https://www.usef.org/forms-pubs/RDbCewvK3Cw/proposed-amendments-to-usef-bylaws (It’s on the last page.)
All Senior Active members are invited to comment on the proposed amendments by submitting comments through the proposed amendments form: https://www.usef.org/forms/proposed-amendments or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. All comments must be received by USEF on or before June 14. Your membership number must be included along with your comments.
I’m not sure how I feel about it. I am already a USEF member since I compete at Prelim. I’m a bit concerned that that this may discourage the addition of Modified to events that run through only Training or Modified.
