Carter's November/December newsletter has a number of articles that might be of interest to curling club board members - a key one of these articles, written by Terrance S. Carter and Jacqueline M. Demczur, provides a legal risk management checklist for not-for-profit organizations. Carter's have provided an excellent outline of the kinds of risks boards and executive staff face in the operation of not-for-profit organzations. And remember, the articles themselves don't constitute legal advice and are current only as of the date of publication. Not only is it no longer a simple world, it evolves continually. With regards to the transition process to the new Ontario legislation, check out Carter's Ontario Not-for-profit Corporations Act webpage. Carters have advised that they will be hosting a full day Charity and Not-for-Profit Seminar on Thursday, February 13, 2013 at the Centurion Centre in Ottawa. Registration information will be available later this month here.
Things will be rockin on and off the ice at the Smiths Falls Dominion Tankard 2014 Ontario Mens Curling Championship. Along with being entertained by the play of 11 elite men's curling teams vying for entry into the Brier, attendees will enjoy some great musical entertainment as well. Every evening, starting on the Monday and continuing until the Saturday, the Lockmasters House in the Upper Hall of the community centre will be transformed into an entertainment showcase from 8 p.m. until midnight - with a definite emphasis on variety.
