Vice Chair of Development Opening

2017-06-11

Dear CSSA Members,

The CSSA Board of Directors would like to share with you that Samantha Read has resigned as a member of the CSSA Board, effective June 6, 2017, due to the substantial increase in her responsibilities at work. During Sam’s tenure on the Board, she was a valuable contributor to CSSA and held the challenging and time-consuming positions of Registrar and VC Development. Her knowledge and experience will be missed and the entire Board would like to thank Sam for her dedication and contributions to CSSA. We are hopeful, when time permits, that Sam will be able to assist and support the Board and CSSA in other capacities.

As a result, the role of VC Development for the 2017-2018 Season is now open. Pursuant to section 4.12 of the by-laws, in the event of a vacancy on the Board during the course of the season, the Board can either fill that vacancy, or the position may remain vacant until the next annual general meeting. As the VC Development position is an important role, the Board’s preference is to have a new director in place by mid-July.

If any CSSA member is interested in applying for the VC Development position we would request that you send an e-mail to Carole Yen at office.manager@calgaryspeedskating.ca by no later than Friday, June 30, 2017.

Please provide a brief description of your qualifications and why you would like to join the Board in this specific role. Following a review of any applicants, the Board will appoint a VC Development to serve until the next annual general meeting in April 2018.
For additional information, the description for the position of VC Development is attached to this e-mail.
