Duncan Jamieson has completed the review of the Ottawa Valley Curling Association with two "focus" group meetings and a follow-up discussion with the OVCA Board (May 6th). The Board has tasked a number of Board members to generate a work plan and report back in June. The result will be the focus for thie September 16th Annual General Meeting along with the closely related issues of a dearth of volunteers and the need to grow club membership. A copy of the powerpoint presentation is here. Duncan's report to the OVCA Board can be found here.
This year's OVCA Annual General Meeting and President's Dinner will be held on Monday, September 16th at the RA. Invitations will be sent during early August to Club Presidents, Committee Chairpersons, the Board of Administrators, Past Presidents, Honorary Members and Ken Thain Awardees. As well, representatives of other curling associations will be invited. The meeting will centre on Duncan Jamieson's review of the OVCA mission. Annual reports, financial statements and an update on the Development Fund will be uploaded to this website around the end of August.
OCA's Doug Bakes also provided a wide range of "business of curling" information at the May OCA Zone meetings. He has done an excellent job of outting together the kinds of informaiton that Board members would find useful. To access the files, go here.
