By Craig Taggart, National Recognition Committee Chair (

There are three openings on the national recognition committee (formerly known as the national awards committee).

As a member of the committee, you will be responsible for scoring awards nominations following the national recognition program guidelines. You will be required to review the submissions by a set deadline in a fair, objective and respectful manner; participate in (usually) one conference call; provide input on the nomination and scoring process; and complete other duties as required.

Committee members must have good time management skills, the ability to express themselves verbally and in written form, work with a team to meet the goals and objectives of the program, and have a good understanding of the CSP recognition program.

Committee members must have at least five years of patrol experience and be an active regular member with day-to-day patrol experience.

The makeup of the committee requires that a life member be on the committee. As the current member has fulfilled his three-year mandate, we are now looking for another life member to join the committee.

Additionally, at least one of the remaining members selected must hold a Canadian Ski Patroller Award.

Regional diversity will also be considered within the pool of applicants.

If you want to be part of a great committee and get a real sense of what people across our organization are doing, this is the group to be part of.

Applications must include the following:

  • Patrol CV, including all CSP experience, positions held (current or past), recognitions received, length of service, as well as any pertinent information from your personal/professional life which is relevant.
  • A cover letter which includes your reasons for wanting to be part of the committee, and what you can bring to the position.
  • The names of two references.

Please note – your zone and/or division presidents will be contacted to indicate that you have applied for the position.

Applications must be submitted by October 18, 2020 to the chair of the recognition committee, Craig Taggart ( The full job description is available here. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Craig.
