Dear Members,

Make a Difference at your Club.

The North Shore Winter Club’s Nominating Committee is seeking nominations for the 2018 – 2019 Board of Directors. Members of the Board of Directors are elected by a majority vote of the membership at the October 25, 2018 Annual General Meeting. Directors serve as volunteers without compensation.

The primary responsibility of the Board is to foster the long-term success of the operations of the North Shore Winter Club (“NSWC” or the “Club”) consistent with the Board’s fiduciary responsibilities to the Members.

The Nominating Committee will be taking nominations for three (3) open positions for Directors for 2018 – 2019. If you are willing and able to contribute your time, energy, and progressive ideas to support the NSWC or if you know someone who would be an asset to the Club in a leadership position, please fill out a nomination form and return it to the Executive Coordinator, khirji@nswc.ca or Member Services by 5:00 pm Friday on September 21, 2018.
