Call for Nominations-Male Independent Director
Nordiq Canada is seeking individuals who are interested in joining the Nordiq Canada Board of Directors. The election of one male Independent Director for a one-year term will occur at the Annual General Meeting, June 18, 2022. The gender requirement is based on the Nordiq Canada by-laws which require an equal number of male and female Independent Directors on the Board.
We are specifically looking for candidates with experience in one or more of the following areas to help round out the capacity and capability of the Board:
● Risk Management
● Fundraising and business development to assist the CEO with achieving a broader set of funders for the organization
● Legal expertise to advise on key committees of the Board
● High performance (including Paranordic) and sport development knowledge
● Prior experience with not-for-profit, policy governance boards
In addition to the skills mentioned, Nordiq Canada is seeking Board members who are representative of Canadian society at large.
In Person Board Meeting
For the first time since 2019, the Board of Directors met in person this week. Many staff and Board members enjoyed meeting each other. Guest presentations included reconciliation, equity, diversity and inclusion; Sport Canada policy and funding frameworks; building trusting relationships. CEO Stephane provided accountability reporting, management shared plans for the upcoming season, and the Board approved by-law changes to be ratified at this year’s AGM. The Board also attended the Alberta World Cup Society year-end social, went for a ski, and did a little grunt work around the office. A very productive weekend and a great preview for the AGM in Gatineau QC, June 16-18.
