CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

SEPTEMBER 2019 ELECTIONS

The outstanding success of Canada’s national artistic swimming teams stem from a solid membership base and the quality programming offered by Canada Artistic Swimming (CAS), the governing body of the sport in Canada.

CAS is looking for interested, qualified candidates to join its Board and help lead the organization.

The Board meets approximately once a month and as required. The meetings are held by telephone or in person. At its annual meeting, on September 14th 2019, CAS voting members will elect 2 directors to serve for a 2-year term and 2 directors to serve for a 3-year term.

NOMINATIONS

Persons interested in joining the CAS Board should complete the nomination form and attach a brief curriculum vitae. A brief statement is required as to why you wish to run for the position, your prospective contribution to delivering the CAS mission, along with your personal objectives as a Director, should you be elected.

Following consultation with the Board and other stakeholders, the Nominating Committee especially welcomes nominations from those who can strengthen CAS’s representation in the following areas of skills and expertise:

  • Finance
  • Technology
  • Communication
  • Change management
  • Alumni relations and philanthropy
  • Governance and board experience
  • Experience or insight into multiple levels of artistic swimming (high performance, club, provincial sport organization, trainer…)

Section 28.5 of the CAS Bylaws states that no more than two directors may reside in one Province or Territory.

CAS is committed to building a skilled, diverse Board reflective of Canadian society and of our sport community.

The application must be endorsed by one Canada Artistic Swimming registrant.   This application (not the contact information page) will be shared with the voting delegates prior to the Annual Meeting.

PROCESS

The Nominating Committee will screen all nominations received to ensure that they meet the minimum qualifications required at law for a director (an individual, at least 18 years of age, with capacity and not bankrupt).

Nominations will then be reviewed and evaluated against the skills, expertise and diversity as provided for above. The Nominating Committee will make a list of recommended candidates and of qualified candidates.
