2019 UMPIRE COMMITTEE CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
Rowing BC is seeking nominations for individuals to fill positions to be elected to the Rowing BC Umpire Committee during the Annual Umpire Recertification Seminar on January 19, 2019 in Sidney, BC.
The Umpire Committee is authorized by the Rowing BC By-Laws to conduct their business in accordance with the Umpire Committee Terms of Reference. The Umpire Committee is responsible for developing and implementing plans and programs in support of the education and development of Umpires in British Columbia. The overall goal of the Umpire Committee is to ensure that Rowing BC and its member organizations have access to a pool of qualified and educated umpires of all levels, and those individuals in British Columbia who want to become Umpires or to improve their skills as Umpires have access to the training and development opportunities they require. The Umpire Committee shall report to the Executive Director via the Chairperson.
The Umpire Committee will be elected by those Licensed Umpires in British Columbia in attendance at the Annual Umpire Recertification Seminar. The Umpire Committee shall consist of between four (4) to seven (7) individuals as follows:
- Up to six (6) Licensed Umpire Representatives
- One (1) President of Rowing BC
Term-lengths and number of elected Umpire Representatives each year will be established so as to allow for turnover of half of the Umpire Committee on an annual basis. Generally, term-lengths will be 2 years. Following their term, Umpire Representatives may stand for re-election. The Umpire Committee can appoint a Licensed Umpire to fill a vacancy.
Please submit your intent to stand for election via email to Rowing BC Executive Director, David Calder by Friday, January 11, 2019. Individuals are encouraged to submit an accompanying 250 word biography introducing themselves to the umpire community to help inform the election process. Names and biographies of individuals up for election will be emailed to all Umpires in advance of the Recertification Seminar. There will be no nominations from the floor.
