Elections 2019! Important - Please Read!Posted By: Lara On: Thu 14th Mar, 2019 4:48pm

DO YOU WANT MY JOB?!  Because you can have it! All it takes is for you to win the hearts, minds, and votes of your fellow paddlers at this year’s elections!

On Thursday 2nd May (Week 2 Term 3) we will be heading to Kelsey’s to conduct the important business of appointing new club members into exec roles for the next year. More on this to come, but you MUST wear formal wear or a suitable alternative will be provided. You will also need to attend if you want to be able to cast your vote on any prospective candidates. (If you are concerned that you may not be able to attend the night, please contact a member of the current exec.)

In total there will be 17 positions available across both clubs, these are as follows:

  • President (Canoe/Polo): Organise and run everything in the club.
  • Vice-President (Canoe only): Help the President organise and run everything in the club.
  • Secretary (Canoe/Polo): Take minutes, organise the President's life, order club merchandise.
  • Treasurer (Canoe/Polo): Manage the finances of the club.
  • Kit Secretary (Canoe/Polo): Maintain and purchase new kit.
  • Coaching Secretary (Canoe/Polo): Oversee the training and development of members.
  • Tour Secretary (Canoe only): Organise Scotland Tour.
  • Tournament Secretary (Polo only): Organise Warwick Tournaments and National/Regional leagues.
  • Social Secretaries x2 (Joint): Organise weekly socials and post-session pub trips.
  • Media Monkey (Joint): Keep the website and social media up to date.
  • Charities, Development, and Outreach Officer - This is a new exec role and will only be opened once all other positions have been filled.

https://warwickcanoe.uk/site/execpositions/ has a good run down of what these positions involve but feel free to speak to any exec member if you have further questions.

All candidates will be expected to perform a Canoe themed song/poem and a joke on the night. If you intend to run for an exec position, please email your intention to run to the appropriate current president, although decisions to run can be changed on the night (and yes, if you are intending to run for a joint position, you should email both presidents):



Candidates running for President will also be expected to produce a short manifesto (around 200 words) detailing why you want to run and what you want to bring to the club. This should also be emailed to the current president by the end of the Easter Holidays.

Manifestos will be released early in Term 3 on the website news section https://warwickcanoe.uk/site/news

If you are considering running for exec, rest assured that it is one of the most worthwhile and fulfilling things you can do with your time. You will have a great ability to shape the direction of the club and enable the club to offer the same or better experiences to those you have had yourself. And if that’s not enough, exec gives you access to a regular supply of cake.

Happy democracy,

Lara, Hannah, and all of the joint exec


Canoe NewsKit borrowing for personal paddling tripsPosted By: Hadyn On: Mon 5th Jun, 2017 2:57pm
We have had an issue recently with kit being stored on the balcony and blocking the fire escape doors. As a reminder guys kit should be returned to the garage at the earliest possible convenience.
If kit has to be stored on the balcony, for a short period of time, then please leave it behind the rope we use to section off the kayaks and never in front of the fire escape doors (Warwick Sport take this very seriously).
As the summer approaches more people borrow club kit for personal paddling trips. We don't charge a fee for borrowing kit on personal trips as we want to encourage everyone to kayak as much as possible, but in doing so you must fill in the kit borrowing form, in addition to asking a member of Canoe's Exec. This is so we have a written record of who took what kit were as kit has a habit of disappearing over the summer.
Please remember that while we don't charge for lost or broken kit on club trips we will do so for personal paddling trips our charges along with the full kit borrowing policy can be read on our website.
