Springwater Sports Heritage Board

The Board is the principle governing entity responsible for administering Springwater Sports Heritage.  The Board is composed of nine (9) Directors and two (2) Ex Officio Members.

Directors

The nine (9) Directors are an exceptional and diverse group of community volunteers who have chosen to contribute their experience, expertise and time to assist in directing and overseeing the endeavours and purpose of Springwater Sports Heritage.  When a Director vacancy arises the Board will solicit and approve new Directors.  To assist in ensuring there is a balance of Director representation across the Township a determined effort is made to achieve geographic, gender and sport related parity.

Support

The Board is very pleased to have the benefits of Faye Stone as the recording secretary.  The very high quality and quick turnaround of Board and Standing Committee minutes heightens the ability of the Board and Committees to accomplish their responsibilities and undertakings.  Equally helpful is the support SSH receives from its Township Resource contact Ron Belcourt.  With his cooperation, and diverse Township colleagues assistance, SSH is well guided and strengthened.
