Ontario Sidesaddle Association - Call for Director Nominations

Call for Consideration
If you have an interest in side-saddle, please consider supporting our club by running for one (1) of five (5) possible Board of Directors positions.  Any current Ontario Side-saddle Association member over 18, is eligible & you may nominate yourself or another upon their agreement.

The Fun Stuff
Being involved in the beginning years of OSA will be very rewarding for the ground breakers.  This is your chance to have real input forming an association that fits your needs.  The informal meetings rotate around various members’ homes serving coffee & cookies.  The duration is usually around 3 hours with much animated, fun discussion promoting side-saddle.  You can be involved as little or as much as you want with no special skills required.  Come out & meet new friends with the fellowship of a common interest.

The Formal Stuff
This letter is the formal by-law notice & governance, to solicit Board of Directors nominations to be submitted by Tuesday March 15, 2011.  Once submissions are received, a general notification letter of nominees will be sent to the OSA membership by April 15, 2011.  Candidates will be voted upon at the OSA Annual General Meeting held in the Guelph area May 14, 2011.

  • Fulfill a 2 year term upon acceptance of position at AGM
  • Attend at least 3 meetings during each calendar year beginning January 1
  • Participate in all matters affecting the membership
(There are By-law resolutions if for some reason you no longer can maintain your post.)
Feel free to contact any of the nominating committee for more information or queries – see contact info below.
Check out our blog at to get a feel for the excitement of Ontario’s first side-saddle riding club.

Next Step
Please submit an email of your intent to consider running for Board of Director election.  There are five (5) positions required.  At that point someone from the nominating committee will contact you for further submission information.
