The following Executive Committee members have indicated that they are willing to hold his or her seat for the upcoming season: Masten Brolsma (Past President), Bill Gilliland (Vice President), Beth Bohme (Treasurer), Farley Klotz (Cross Country Program Director) and Bart Hulshof (Communications Director).

Multiple members have expressed interest in the Secretary and Biathlon Program Director position. No one has yet expressed interest in the President or Events Director positions.To ensure a vibrant and active Executive Committee, it is important that all positions are filled.

By-Law Amendment. Current club by-laws include the following: “Purpose: The Club’s purpose it to promote cross-country skiing and related activities, such as biathlon, as a competitive sport and as a form of recreation in the City of Calgary and throughout Alberta.” We have been informed by the government that a ‘Purpose’ is not to be included in our club by-laws. We will therefore be voting to remove the above Purpose from our by-laws.

More information on the AGM will be sent out to all members as the date approaches.

Thank you in advance for your participation!

Kevin McLean, President
