Dear division presidents and zone presidents:

I am sorry to announce that Justin Lane has stepped down as vice-president of Training and Development. Justin’s term was due to end in several months, however he was forced to step down at this point for personal reasons.

Linda Andrews has graciously agreed to manage the portfolio until a permanent replacement is selected and will sit as an interim member of the management committee. Linda will attend Altitude in Quebec City and will lead the Training and Development sessions in Justin’s place. Many thanks to Linda for stepping forward.

We will continue our open selection process, and will be posting this important volunteer position for the consideration of qualified members (see attached job description). We would encourage interested individuals to apply. As with other recent openings on the management committee, we will conduct a formal interview and selection process. I will be joined by a couple of past and/or current board members on the selection committee.

Justin has made a significant contribution to the Canadian Ski Patrol over the years. He was a valued member of the management committee who brought a strategic perspective to all his work. We thank him for his significant contribution, and we wish him the very best for the future.

Colin Saravanamuttoo

President and Chief Executive Officer
