APPLICATION FOR ALPINE CANADA ALPIN BOARD OF DIRECTORS – INTERIM VACANCY
Alpine Canada Alpin (ACA) is seeking qualified candidates to fill a vacancy on its Board of Directors. This is a mid-cycle appointment due to a resignation, with the successful appointee being expected to stand for election by the Members at the 2019 AGM. As a national body, the board of ACA is comprised of members from across the country. ACA is particularly looking for directors with experience in the following areas: governance, fundraising, and marketing. Per ACA bylaws, there can be a maximum of three directors from any province or territory. Since the board currently has three directors from Quebec, applicants can be from any other province or territory.
Alpine Canada Alpin is the national governing body for Alpine, Para-alpine, and Ski Cross racing in Canada. With the support of valued corporate partners along with the Government of Canada, Own the Podium (OTP) and the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), ACA develops Olympic, Paralympic, World Championship and World Cup medallists to stimulate visibility, inspiration and growth in the ski community. ACA works in partnership with the Provincial and Territorial Ski Organizations (PTSOs) across Canada.
Candidates interested in serving as a director should have a passion for and knowledge of ski racing. Past experience on a not-for-profit board and knowledge of the workings of a board from a good governance perspective is an asset. Experience and understanding of the workings of a National or Provincial/Territorial Sport Organization is also an asset, but is not required.
The successful candidates would be expected to attend Board meetings held two or three times per year in person across Canada, plus several teleconference meetings (approximately once a month). There is also the expectation to participate on one or more of the Board’s committees and actively contribute to the mandate of ACA. Directors of ACA are volunteer positions.
If you are interested and would like to help shape the future of ski racing in Canada and develop future Olympic, Paralympic, World Championship and World Cup champions, please email a letter of interest along with a biographical profile to Cheryl Sandercock, Chair of the Governance Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 20th, 2019.
Submitted letters of interest will be reviewed by the ACA Governance Committee after which the ACA Governance Committee will make its recommendation to the ACA Board of Directors for the appointment. The ACA Board of Directors will then submit its recommendations to the ACA Members for final approval at the 2019 AGM.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Cheryl Sandercock
