At our Tam Heather Board of Director’s meeting last night, the Tam Heather Board regretfully accepted the resignation of Dennis Welbanks as President. Dennis is stepping down due to personal reasons.
We would like to thank Dennis for all of his contributions to Tam Heather over the years including serving on the Board of Directors for the past 17 years as President. Dennis was also Chairman and Drawmaster of the Mixed Curling Committee for several years.
On an interim basis Dennis served as Club Manager for the 2014-15 season following the passing of Ross Oldham, and was instrumental in the hiring of Doug Miller and Jason Leneeuw as General Managers.
More recently in 2020-21, Dennis helped steer the Club and its policies through the pandemic. His contribution and wise council will be missed.
David Muir Elected President of the Tam Heather Board of Directors
In response to Dennis Welbanks’ resignation and as outlined in our Constitution/By-Laws Sec 5.19(b), it is the current BOD’s responsibility to nominate and elect replacement Board Members for any vacancies. At our January 11, 2023 Board meeting, the current Vice-President David Muir was nominated for the position of President and he accepted that nomination. The BOD, as empowered by the same Sec 5.19(b), then unanimously voted for David Muir to assume the responsibilities as President of the Tam Board of Directors until the next Annual General Meeting, tentatively scheduled for September 25, 2023.
With the now vacant Vice President position, the BOD decided to call for open nominations for this position from our Tam Heather membership.
Joining the Board now, may be the perfect opportunity to see what it is like, as we will soon be recruiting new members for the Board with terms of service starting September 2023.
