Canoe South Australia’s committees are committees of the Board of Directors with powers and authorities delegated by the Board. Functions vary from committee to committee but, typically, are as follows:

  • a forum for consideration of practical issues and resolution of problems
  • responsibility for the conduct of events / activities relative to that committee
  • a source of expert advice and assistance to Board of Directors and Canoe South Australia as a whole 
  • a review body and commentator (in relation to discussion papers, reports, etc)
  • a source of policy proposals and reform initiatives
  • a monitor of standards and advocate of ongoing training and skills development
  • a liaison body.
Committees therefore have an important role and the way in which they perform is integral to the professionalism of Board of Director’s decision making and the performance of Canoe South Australia as a whole.

The process for appontment of committees will be as follows:

The Board of Directors will select a Chairperson from the nominations. If insufficient or unsuitable nominations are lodged, then the Board may appoint another person as Chair.

The Board will then select, in conjunction with the Chair of each committee (as selected in the above paragraph), the remainder of the committee members from the nominations. If insufficient or unsuitable nominations are lodged, then the Board may appoint other persons to the committee as required.

 Further information including detailed Role & Function of the Committee Chair are available by contacting Ian Hume at the Canoe SA Office on (08) 8240 3294.
