The 2020 virtual Annual Meeting (AM) of Canada Artistic Swimming concluded on Saturday, September 19th with the election of four new board members.
It was an informative session that commenced with a presentation from Lindsay Larue, Sport Canada Consultant. Then Julie Healy, CAS Chief Sport Officer, reviewed the achievements and future plans in the areas of coaching and athlete development. The 65 people in attendance also heard from Olivia Zawadiuk, Athlete Council Chair and Athlete Representative on the Board and Lindsay Duncan, Board Member and co-chair of the Diversity and Inclusion Working Group.
During the meeting, delegates approved a completely revised set of By-Laws for Canada Artistic Swimming, culminating a project that had involved the Board, the Governance Committee and the Members with the support and guidance of Benoit Girardin, from LBB Strategies, over a period of nine months leading into this meeting.
The four new elected CAS Board Members bring a strong, diverse skill set to the governance of the organization.
