Dressage Canada is pleased to announce that Karen Thompson-Harry has been ratified as the new Chair for the Officials Committee. Thompson-Harry will serve a three year term taking office January 1st, 2015.
No candidates were nominated for the Officials Committee Chair position during the recent Dressage Canada Committee Election process; therefore, as per the Dressage Canada Governance the Board appointed Thompson-Harry to fill this position for the 2015-2018 term.
Thompson-Harry brings vast experience to this position as a past Chair of Dressage Canada and a long serving member of the Officials Committee. We welcome her in this new role for Dressage Canada.
“I am looking forward to working with the Dressage Canada Board again, and I am excited to take on a leadership role with the Officials Committee,” commented Thompson-Harry. “Thank you to the members of the Officials Committee for putting your trust in me to take this on, and the confidence and support of the Board. During my tenure on Officials Committee, I have had the opportunity to work with Lorraine MacDonald, Brenda Minor and, most recently, Joan Macartney in their roles as Chair, and they have all been excellent leaders. I have big shoes to fill.”
