Nominations open for British Canoeing President

Please note, the deadline for applications has now passed.

British Canoeing is currently seeking nominations for the role of President.

Our current President Ivan Lawler MBE will not be seeking re-election, once his current term comes to an end in March 2021.

The role of President of British Canoeing is for individuals who have demonstrated outstanding service to British Canoeing or the national associations.

It is an honorary position and carries no executive or decision making powers.

It is intended that there is a change of President on a regular basis, so that the outstanding contribution of many individuals can be through the honour of becoming President.

The President is elected every two years at the Annual General Meeting, following a ballot of the membership.

The appointment will start immediately following election at the AGM on Saturday 13 March 2021.
