Thank you for your help in getting the word to potential candidates.

 

Zone Representative

With the changes in the Squash BC By-Laws which were approved in January 2017, the role of Zone Representatives as we’ve known them in the recent past has changed as has the process for nomination.

In the past, league organizers have been asked by SQBC to name a representative for their Zone. Same is true this year, however, now a nominations form needs to be completed by the interested candidate and submitted to Squash BC for Board approval.

Zone Representatives are individual members who have been appointed by the Board to represent their zone and who have agreed to abide by and adhere to the Society’s By-Laws, policies, procedures and rule. (By-Law 2.1 b)

Zone representatives shall act as a liaison and represent the interests of the individuals in their zone keeping a broad view of the overall structure, operation and objectives of Squash BC and its membership with the intent of promoting and growing the squash in BC and communicating with members more effectively. They should work with the clubs/facilities, leagues, associations and events in their zone as well as with the Squash BC office and committees of Squash BC.

In addition Zone Representatives are expected to:

  • Provide a report on zone activities to each Annual and Special General Meeting.
  • Attend Annual and Special General meetings of Squash BC and have voting rights at those meetings. The cost of travel for the AGM will be covered by Squash BC. Typically this involves 2 face to face meetings for 1 day each in January and late May/early June.
  • Outside of the AGM, zone representatives will participate in 1-2 additional meetings via conference call over the course of the year to provide mutual support and share information.

The term for a Zone Representative is one year.

Typically Zone 6 –  Vancouver Island has been split with a South and North Island representative each. Still suggesting the same thing.

Typically Vancouver Squash League has represented Zones 4 & 5 and identified one person to vote on behalf of both zones. The new By-Laws state that there needs to be someone identified for each zone.

Zone  4 Fraser River (e.g. Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Port Moody, Surrey, White Rock, New Westminster) AND

Zone 5 Vancouver Coastal (e.g. Sunshine Coast, Vancouver, North & West Vancouver, Richmond, Squamish, Whistler, etc.)

As members, this is your Zone representation and we encourage you to read the calls for nominations and refer it to your squash friends and colleagues who may be interested in these volunteer roles. Please nominate your representative prior to April 24th.
Thank you for your continued support in developing squash in BC! Nominations should be submitted to executivedirector@squashbc.com

Deadline to apply: April 24, 2017

Best regards
