EX - PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Dear BC Water Polo Members,
My name is David Bird and I am reaching out to let you know that I am the new President of BC Water Polo. I am delighted to be given the chance to represent you as your President and look forward to a positive change.
I would like to thank the outgoing BCWPA Board and staff, particularly Zoran Markinovic, Zoran Maletic, and Ben Jones for their service to this important organization over the past year. Their personal dedication and passion over the past year ensured that an organization that is very important to all of us stayed “alive”. Their work in helping us get to today is commendable and should be acknowledged by us all as I believe we owe them a debt of gratitude.
I am pleased to let you know that we have a good slate of new individuals who will help me provide the stewardship that this club needs to advance the sport of water polo in BC and on the national stage. Helping me do the “heavy lifting” will be:
Vice President – Ken Grimman
Treasurer – Will Arundel
Secretary – Darlene Sinkovits
Director of High Performance – Kevin Mitchell
Director of Regions – Ference Vindisch
Director of Lower Mainland – Claire Hamilton
Director of Tournaments – Gabriella Vindisch (continuing)
I assure you all that we are dedicated to moving BC Water Polo forward and building on the foundation we already have. I look forward to providing our membership with a path onward and with a report on progress to date in the next month. We will be transparent and open to all input as we move forward and re-set BCWPA.
Thank you for this opportunity and for your support as we chart the course forward for water polo in BC.
