Alberta Slalom Canoe Kayak - 2020 Annual General Meeting & Planning Session

Notice of 2020 - ASCK Annual General Meeting - November 28, 2020 - Virtual 

Mission: Alberta Slalom Canoe Kayak is the provincial non-profit organization that advances the sport of whitewater slalom canoe and kayak to develop paddlers to their full potential.

We would like to invite you to the 2020 Alberta Slalom Annual General Meeting! This year it will be easier than ever for people to participate, wherever you find yourself.

November 28, 2020 - 10am - Zoom (details below)

Please RSVP

Despite a really topsy turvy year, we are really happy to have had productive and excellent experiences. We had a 'normal' trip to Australia in February, which seems like 3 years ago, and then everything changed. At the outset of the pandemic ASCK set priorities to help guide us through:

Be There - Be there for our athletes and members - We implemented video gym; upon relaunch we got back on the water in a safe way; The clubs did a great job supporting their athletes across the province; We were lucky to time events and camps to take advantage of lulls in the pandemic and still provide an opportunity for athletes to test their skills.

Innovate - Jump online; Interview World and Olympic medalists; Watch for opportunities; Adapt to online coach education

Fiscal Responsibility - Decrease expenses (de-insure van, move storage to Canoe Meadows); Take advantage of Covid subsidies (Wage Subsidy, CEBA loan); Partner with AWA to help with the fiscal uncertainty for 2020.

Plan for the Future - We put over 20 people through Comp-Intro NCCP coaching courses (more than the previous three previous years combined); Learn new skills on and off the water; Develop new participants; Improve the Harvie Slalom Course; Build relationships (Clubs, AEP, SUP, BC) 

At this AGM we have several board positions coming up for election. We welcome a diverse board of directors and invite you to join us to continue to build the sport in Alberta. 

We also welcome all participants to a Planning Session for the second half of the meeting to review strategic direction, values and planning for 2021.
