WO Special General Meeting, Jan.24.17 7:30pm

Good Day,

 Whitewater Ontario is scheduling a General Meeting for a couple of provincial and club relevant items.  It is open to all members.  

 - Tuesday January 24th, 2017

- 7:30pm

- Go To Meeting - Online TeleConference

 

AGENDA ITEMS: 

1)  NEW ADHOC POSITION FOR 2017

We are accepting nominations for a position of AdHoc Director. 

 Background:   

  • Since the AGM in November 2016, there is a proposal to add a position to the Board of Directors. 
  • There is an identified need for this position to assist with engaging members, both current and future.  
  • This position is to help grow the organization as per objectives set by CKC and our own membership strategic plan 3years ago.   
  • There is currently 1 nominee with a strong skillset for this and other board duties. 
  • List of nominees will close immediately prior to the start meeting. 
  • Proxy voting via email will be permitted by members.

 

2)  NAME CHANGE of MWWP

  There is a proposal to change the name from Minden "Wild Water" Preserve to the Minden "Whitewater" Preserve.

 Background:

  • The Board of Directors is seeking input from clubs and member paddlers regarding a name change to reflect more current terms. 
  • OWWA (Ontario Wild Water Affiliation) and The Minden Wild Water Preserve has held its name since in their inception in the 1970's. 
  • The term "wild water" was used back then by OWWA to reflect a "sense of adventure".  It is also a european term to reflect steep major descents of Class 4-5, 
  • In current day, the term Wild Water is now used by water-based theme parks, and the competitive category of and downriver racing. 
  • In 1997 OWWA rebranded as "Whitewater Ontario" to simplify its name and become more current.  It had the support of its original members. 

  • Nowadays paddlers and locals including Minden Township officials, refer to the site as the "whitewater" preserve. 
  • To confirm this proposal - Roger Parsons, one of the original founders of the MWWP and OWWA has made it clear that he strongly supports changing the name to:  Minden Whitewater Preserve. 
  • This will help rebrand the preserve as we continue to do river and trail improvements.  

 Please indicate your participation by completing the Special Meeting registration form, link provided below:
