Call for Candidates and Voting Information

 

The Athlete Directors (often called “Athlete Reps”) are full voting members on Nordiq Canada’s Board of Directors, and represent the perspectives of Nordiq Canada’s athletes in decision making. They are crucial to ensuring the athlete voice is heard, and to Nordiq Canada’s success as an organization. Nordiq Canada has two Athlete Director positions, with the requirement of gender equity between the two. As the current Athlete Director position is occupied by a female, an election will take place to elect a male Athlete Director.
