FCRCC Annual General Meeting – October 18, 2016



Invitation to All

False Creek Racing Canoe Club Members

To Participate on the FCRCC Executive Board

FCRCC elects its Executive Board Members for the following term at its AGM and this year I am encouraging all members to participate in the AGM and to put their names forward for election to the Board. The AGM is at Emily Carr,   Doors open at 7:15 PM on October 18, 2016.  Meeting commences at 7:30 pm.

Descriptions of the Board positions are outlined on the FCRCC website however I wish to expand briefly on these. Board members have three principal roles:

  • To participate in collective monthly Board meetings and provide strategic direction, decision-making and executive services to the Club;
  • To undertake and champion specific roles or positions on behalf of the Board (these are covered in the descriptions); and
  • To be self-motivated, action-oriented go-getters to ensure to new ideas and initiatives are brought forward and followed up; and that the clubs work is done by them or coordinated through them with the aid of other volunteers.

The Board Positions are:

  • Commodore
  • Vice-Commodore
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • Discipline Reps
    • Outrigger
    • Flatwater
    • Dragon Boat
  • Equipment
  • Communications
  • Fundraising

Its easy to run for election to these positions. Just get a club member to nominate you for any position(s) you are interested in, another member to second your nomination and forward or email that info with a brief resume (a paragraph or two) to the Board Secretary (ang.hall7740@gmail.com).

Get the kind of leadership you want – run for election, attend the AGM and vote. While a few incumbent Board members are running for re-election I want to emphasize that ALL POSITIONS are up for election .

Terry Parsons, Commodore
