The Ontario Sailing Nominating Committee is now accepting nominations for the Ontario Sailing Board of Directors for the upcoming election at the Annual Meeting in September 2024. 

The Nominating Committee is composed of three independent Ontario Sailing volunteers, whose mandate is to review all submissions, interview all candidates and then recommend a slate of candidates to the Board with selections based on identified organizational needs.

The committee is seeking nominations for candidates to fill three vacant Director positions. Currently the key competencies the Board is looking for include financial, communications, human resources, and diversity & equity in line with Ontario Sailing’s Strategic Plan. There are requirements to serve as a Director under the Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, in addition to these, strengths in any of the competency areas are an asset.

To aid in the selection process and to provide the Nominating Committee with the required context for interviews, we ask that candidates submit a cover letter and resume to the nomination committee. Please email your information to Glenn Lethbridge at execdir@ontariosailing.ca who will collect for the committee.

To aid the nominating committee in the review process, we encourage interested candidates to indicate their interest as soon as possible. The call for nominations will be open until noon on Friday May 31st, 2024.

If you are qualified, someone will be in touch to set up an interview.
