Call for Nominations - Alpine Sport Committee (ASC)

The ASC is made up of a maximum of seven members, one of whom is a Snow Sports NZ employee (Snow Sports NZ Constitution Part IV pp 29-33). Three members of the current ASC (Andrew O’Donoghue, Grant Winsloe and Nils Coberger) complete their three year terms at the 2013 Alpine Forum to be held on 30 October 2013. The Snow Sports NZ Board will appoint two people onto the ASC (Snow Sports NZ Constitution Part IV clause 21.4b) leaving one position to be filled via election.

The ASC is not a representative body (i.e. covers the length and breadth of the country) however it is critical that it is not biased toward, or against, any region and that it operates for the good of the sport across the whole of New Zealand.

Snow Sports NZ seeks nominations from financial members:

  1. with a passion for Alpine Ski Racing;
  2. with sufficient knowledge, time and energy to drive the sport forward;
  3. who will put the sport ahead of personal interests (family, club, region or business); and
  4. who have a vision of what needs to happen to increase the number of competitors and the success of New Zealand athletes on the world stage.


If you are interested in being elected onto the ASC you will need to complete the attached nomination form and return it to Martin Toomey, Chief Executive by 5:00pm on Wednesday 23 October 2013. An electronic voting process will open on 24 October with the successful candidate being identified at the 2013 Alpine Forum.
