Call for Applications

Our members voted in favour of adopting a new Strategic Plan at the AGM in June of 2017. Our new Strategic Plan includes significant changes to the role of the General Manager. The club last conducted a competition for our General Manager position in 2014. The following is a call for applications for the GM position, including an updated description of the job requirements. This does not necessarily mean that there will be a change, but it is felt that it is in the club’s best interest to renew the mandate.
