CORA Seeking Directors and Volunteers

CORA is looking for ambitious members to serve as CORA Directors. The CORA Board of Directors may have a maximum of 15 directors, and we have 10 directors expected to continue in 2023. If you are passionate about outrigger canoeing and would like to volunteer your time and knowledge to the growth of outrigger canoeing in your community and across the country, consider stepping forth for nomination as a director.   Please have a CORA member nominate you via the nomination form linked below.

Director nomination forms must be submitted to CORA no later than Friday, November 18, 2022. We will contact the nominated individual to confirm acceptance of the nomination.

CORA is seeking to increase representation from Eastern Canada and Alberta, as well as all regions of British Columbia, so if you reside in Ontario, Quebec or Alberta, please consider serving as a director.

CORA’s Directors meet via Zoom on the evening of the first Wednesday of every month. The meeting time can be set to accommodate schedules. Directors are asked to serve terms of 3 years, but may resign at any time. The Board of Directors has various Committees with which new Board members can become involved, including those relating to racing, insurance matters, Off-the-Water video conference series, International Va’a Federation (sprint and distance), CORA awards, CORA grants, Canadian outrigger history and public relations. Directors volunteer for CORA’s Officer positions and Committees at the first Board meeting following the AGM.

In addition, CORA members at-large may volunteer to serve on CORA Committees without being a director. If you would like to volunteer for a Committee, please contact us at the link below.

If you would like to nominate a CORA member or step forth yourself as a director nominee, please complete or have your nominator complete and submit the on-line CORA Director Nomination Form or do so at the on-line CORA AGM on Sunday, November 20, 2022. Prospective nominees nominated at the AGM must be in attendance to accept the nomination.
