Join the SKABC Executive

Are you looking for a great opportunity to give something back to SKABC, the best kayak club on the water? Then look no further. At the Annual General Meeting in November, some of our current Executive will be hanging up their sprayskirts making room for new volunteers to bring their enthusiasm and skills to help run the club.

Joining the Executive is a great way to meet more people in the club and gain a better sense of what goes on behind the scenes. You'll increase your appreciation for the dedication and talent among SKABC members that makes this such a vibrant club -- and your contribution will be appreciated in return.

All of the positions on the Executive are up for reelection each year. Specifically, here are descriptions of the roles where we're actively looking for volunteers right now:

** Programs Coordinator(s): Sets content and books presenters for monthly club meetings. Sets budget for meeting and presenter costs. Can be a shared position.

** Trips Officer(s): Schedules trips for the club and identifies qualified trip leaders. Ensures trips are posted on the website. Facilitates meetings of trip leaders. Reviews club trip policies and reports issues as needed. Can be a shared position.

** Conservation Officer: Promotes SKABC's conservation goals. Flows information from outside groups to members via our website, newsletter, and club meetings. Organizes participation in shoreline cleanups. Represents SKABC to the Outdoor Recreation Council.

** Assistant Communications: Helps coordinate avenues of communication to members via email, social media and website. Creates content for news updates and social media.

All of these roles are collaborative -- volunteers on the Executive mentor and support each other during busy times.

Also, there are many other specific jobs and activities that do not require joining the executive. Examples include helping with events, outreach activities, moderating our forums, and improving our social media presence. Veteran club members are needed in mentoring roles that require experience such as presenting at club meetings, organizing workshops and demos, documenting club history, leading trips, and instructing courses.

If you are thinking about taking on an executive role or volunteering for a specific activity, please contact any executive member or email nominationcommittee@skabc.org to learn more.
