Ottawa, ON, Dec. 5, 2016 – Equestrian Canada (EC) is now accepting applications from individuals interested in volunteering on EC’s Eventing Committee and Dressage Committee.

The Eventing and Dressage Committees (formerly Dressage Canada and Eventing Canada) are responsible for defining the mandate of the discipline at the national level of the sport, as well as developing the strategic direction, and supporting programs and services within the discipline to deliver on the mandate. The Committees work in collaboration with the national office staff to ensure the delivery of discipline-specific programs and services, and will be called upon frequently to provide strategic recommendations to the senior management at EC.

Applications will be vetted by the existing Committee members, and a recommendation will be made by the Committee to the EC Chief Executive Officer (CEO) for their appointment to the Committee. Applications will be prioritized based upon candidates’ national/international experience and competency in the sport discipline, as well as gender, regional, technical, and linguistic balance. Applicants must hold a valid EC Sport Licence.
