Expressions of Interest sought for National XC Committee

The SSA Board has called for Expressions of Interest from individuals interested to be on the SSA Cross Country Committee. See excerpt from SSA E-News below for more details.

Dear Member and Interested Person,

The Board of SSA recognises its ultimate accountability for competitive snowsports outcomes at all levels of the athlete pathway.

In recent times, a great deal of work has been done to improve the overall management and communication of pathway opportunities for athletes across all disciplines.

To this end, and as one of its ongoing strategic priorities, the Board has resolved to ensure that the Discipline Advisory Committees provide appropriate expertise and input on the development and operation of the relevant disciplines.

Over the past two years the Discipline Committees of Freestyle, Snowboard and Alpine have undergone a process of assessment and “freshening up” to ensure there is an appropriate mix of skills and experience in order to deliver the strategic objectives of the organisation.

By and large, the performance of the existing SSA Cross Country Discipline Committee has been stable and effective. However, it is prudent for the SSA Board and the committee itself to evaluate the capacity and effectiveness of the current membership.

Accordingly, SSA now seeks Expressions of Interest (EOI) from suitable individuals willing to be appointed to the SSA Cross Country Committee.

A structural overview of the SSA Cross Country Committee is set out in the SSA Discipline Committee Overview document which includes:

  • Roles of the SSA Discipline Committees;
  • Committee membership indicative criteria;
  • Committee membership composition and selection procedures;
  • Meeting procedures; and
  • Reporting requirements to SSA Board.

Interested individuals should forward their EOI on taking into account the position paper, detailing their experience and suitability.

An indicative timetable for the new appointment process is as follows.

  • 17th June 2013 Closing date for EOI
  • End June 2013  Short List settled
  • Early July 2013 Interviews as necessary
  • Start August 2013 Announcement of new DC Membership.

For further information, please contact SSA,
