WSWC TOWN HALL MEETINGS
Effective September 2018, Water Ski and Wakeboard Canada (WSWC) will pilot the transition from the traditional in person annual Congress to quarterly online TownhHall meetings. The next meeting will take place on March 27, 2019 . In an effort to increase transparency and dialogue within the system, an internal audit was conducted to determine where the organization could optimize its ability to increase its communication and engagement within the sector while at the same time, decrease its overall operating expenses. While Congress traditionally proved to be a vital forum to facilitate dialogue within sector and bring the community together, in recent years, Congress participation rates have continued to decline and most recently due to recent changes with the Canada Not-For-Profit Corporations Act, WSWC was required to transition its Annual General Meeting (AGM) to September of each year and is currently hosting online.  With the withdrawal of the AGM from Congress and in examining stakeholder feedback, the breadth and scope of Congress has been impacted over recent years by decreased participation rates and increasing costs associated with hosting and attending the event.
