The AGM

The CANI Board is the body that is responsible for the strategic direction and oversees the operation of all CANI activity.

It is important that CANI has a board with a variety of experiences to ensure the future growth and success of the organisation. To aid this, the board have recruited directors based on skills and competencies to meet future requirements of a modern organisation.

The AGM will be held at the Belfast Boat Club and will start at 7.30pm. Tea and coffee will be served from 7pm.

The process of this AGM is as follows. 

  • Only current members are entitled to vote on the various resolutions as per the CANI Memorandum and Articles of Association.
  • Each CANI affiliated club is entitled to one vote, the club must nominate its representative in writing in advance of the meeting.

Sub-committee elections

After the Company AGM there will be election of officers to the CANI sub committees which are; Coaching Panel, Performance Committee and Equality Action Committee. These committees play an important part in the development of canoeing across NI and we are seeking people with an interest within these areas. The committee meetings can be attended via conference call or in person. The committee chair will arrange the meeting place and time to accommodate the committee members.
