Judi Enns Bradette, from Toronto, Ontario, will serve another three-year term on the Board of Directors of Canada Artistic Swimming (CAS). She was re-elected by her peers to chair the board for another term after completing her first two-year term.
Enns Bradette became involved in the sport as a child and went on to become a professional coach with the Toronto Synchronized Swim Club and the Burlington Synchronized Swim Club. She has been a board member since 2015, and in addition to serving as President, she also has chaired the Human Resources, Nominating, and Governance Committees. Professionally, she runs her own executive search company.
“I appreciate the faith that our Board of Directors has placed in me to continue as President and Board Chair. It’s very exciting to look back at the last few years to see what the Board has accomplished. We have charted our governance course and set the tone for the organization, which resulted in changing its name and brand. We have enjoyed our outstanding success on the FINA Artistic Swimming World Series circuit, winning the overall title this season. And attending the Pan American Games this summer in Lima, Peru, where our team and duet both qualified as the continental champion for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, was a huge highlight for me” said Enns Bradette. “We are also proud of the work we have done collaboratively with our Provincial/Territorial Sport Organizations and clubs to align and achieve our strategic objectives together. And we continue to build strong relationships internationally as we strive to influence and lead the sport forward.”
Her enthusiasm for leading the organization is evident as Enns Bradette looks to the keys to success for CAS over the upcoming term. “I look forward to continue leading CAS to achieve our vision of being a ‘World Leading Nation in Artistic Swimming’.
“We have a number of projects underway to ensure we are well-positioned for the future, including putting into place best practices in safe sport and athlete pathway development. We need to be prepared with succession planning for our international leaders, our senior officials, coaches and for our critical CAS staff positions. Although this work has started, there is more to be done, and I am excited to be part of the team to keep Canada Artistic Swimming on its path to success.”
Also re-elected to the CAS Board of Directors for a three-year term was Lindsay Duncan from Quebec. The other members of the Board are Shannon Higgins (BC), Florence Klein (QC), and Margie Schuett (AB). Olivia Zawadiuk, from British Columbia, is the Athlete Council Chair.
