2019 Free Youth Clinics

OCUA is excited to be running a series of free Youth Ultimate Clinics to introduce youth players (ages 8-13) to Ultimate.

If you are a current OCUA player who wishes to attend a clinic, please provide the name and contact information of the new player you will be bringing. Information required: Participant's full name, age, and their parent's name and contact information.

2019 Call for Nominations - Board of Directors

Ottawa Carleton Ultimate Association’s Nominations Committee is currently seeking candidates for the Board of Directors.
 

The Board of Directors is responsible for the governance of the Association. The Board supervises the Executive Director, provides strategic planning and vision, and develops and implements corporate policy.

OCUA’s Board of Directors is formed by seven members. Four directorships are up for election in 2019. The election will take place at the 2019 Annual General Meeting in April. Of the four available positions, three of these are for two-year terms. The remaining position is for a one-year term. The three candidates receiving the highest number of votes will serve for the two-year terms. Terms begin as of the Annual General Meeting.

Candidates will be acclaimed if the number of candidates running for election is less than or equal to the number of electable positions. In the event of acclamation, the newly elected board members will determine who shall receive the one-year term through discussion; in the event that a decision cannot be reached, the one-year term shall be determined by lot amongst the indeterminate candidates.

Interested candidates are invited to meet directly with current members of the Nominations Committee. If you would like to schedule a meeting or if you have any questions about what is involved in serving as a director, please contact the Nominations Committee at nominations@ocua.ca.

Who Can Run for the Board?

Any non-bankrupt OCUA member over the age of 18 is eligible to run for the OCUA Board of Directors. Potential candidates can be nominated by the Nominations Committee or by the Membership.

Conditions of acceptance for the election are as follows:

  • Endorsement by the Nominations Committee OR signatures of 25 regular members of the Association supporting the candidacy
  • Declaration that there is no conflict of interest inherent in the candidacy (for instance, you are not part of a competing organization)

Nominations by Committee

OCUA encourages all candidates to submit their nominations for formal evaluation by the OCUA Nominations Committee. This committee’s mandate is to assess candidates against the needs of the Association, and to recommend excellent candidates to the Membership. An endorsement by the Nominations Committee is not a guarantee of election - an open vote of all members will determine the Board - but it is OCUA’s hope that a recommendation by the Committee will help inform the membership of the efficacy of a potential director.

The 2019 Nominations Committee is:

  • Heather Wallace, Board Chair
  • Alison Ward, Director
  • Andrea Proulx, Director
  • 2 general members of OCUA, to be announced prior to evaluations

To submit your candidacy to the Nominations Committee, please complete the Candidacy Application Form (PDF found at bottom of page) and send it as soon as possible, but no later than Monday, March 4th, 2019 at 5PM ET, to nominations@ocua.ca.

Please include the word "nominations" in the subject line. You will receive confirmation of receipt within 24 hours. Submissions received after the deadline will not be considered for the 2019 election.

The Nominations Committee will advise of its endorsement decision to candidates by Saturday, March 9th, 2019 at 5PM ET. If you are not successful in obtaining an endorsement from the Nominations Committee you may still run for election by obtaining a nomination from the membership, as outlined below.

Nominations from the Membership

If you would like to stand for the Board of Directors, but choose to bypass the Nominations Committee, you must submit your name directly to the Nominations Committee no later than Sunday March 24th, 2019 5PM ET, along with the signatures of 25 regular members of the Association supporting the candidacy, and your declaration that there is no conflict of interest inherent in the candidacy. To submit your candidacy, please email nominations@ocua.ca.

Please include the word "candidate" in the subject line. You will receive confirmation of receipt within 24 hours. Submissions received after the deadline will not be considered for the 2019 election.

Required Commitment

In general, the director position will require:

  • A one-year or two-year commitment to the Board
  • 2 hours of work per week
  • Regular communication via email, Slack, and phone with other directors and the Membership
  • Attendance at Board meetings; usually 2 hours in length, occurring monthly. Board meetings usually occur every second Tuesday of the month, with meetings usually occurring in the mornings during the summer months to accommodate league game schedules.

Depending on participation in various projects and committees, this commitment could be increased. Time commitment may also be higher at certain times of year (spring is a usual busy time).

General Competencies

OCUA seeks candidates who are passionate about the sport of ultimate, enthusiastic about the opportunity to grow the Association and possess the following competencies:

  • Integrity and mutual support (Spirit of the Game)
  • Strong leadership and management capabilities
  • Communication and diplomacy skills
  • Team-building and facilitation skills
  • The ability to be flexible and innovative
  • "Big Picture" vision

Experience

The Board of Directors is always interested in candidates with specific skill sets or experience. Experience in any of the following fields is not required, but would be a strong asset:

  • Marketing, communications, and media relations
  • Legal
  • Fundraising & sponsorship
  • Facilities management
  • Sports management
  • Human resources
  • Information technology
  • Finance
  • Tournaments and member relations
