Canadian Reining Committee Seeks Nominees for Election

If you have a passion for reining and would like to be involved in the governance of the sport in Canada, the Canadian Reining Committee is calling for nominations to fill two positions on the Committee for 2013.

In 2010 the Canadian Reining Committee (CRC) was established as an ad-hoc discipline committee of Equine Canada. At that time six members were appointed from the Canadian reining community. Their terms began Feb. 1, 2011.

Starting in 2013 two CRC members are to be elected at large from the Canadian reining community. Any member elected to the CRC must be a Canadian citizen, hold a current Equine Canada Sport Licence and be a member of a provincial sport association.  These individuals will serve a two-year-term which will commence in February, 2013.

Below is the election timeline as outlined in the CRC Governance Manual.
