Board and Governance

The Nanaimo Ocean Paddling Club is a non-profit society governed by an elected volunteer Board of Directors and guided by the club’s constitution and bylaws. The Policy and Procedures manual is the operating manual of the club. It’s intended as a guide for the Board of Directors, staff and volunteers.

NOPC is a member club of Canadian Outrigger Racing Association (CORA). As a member club we receive communication and administrative support through their central offices, as well as third party liability insurance coverage for sanctioned activities and events. Our memberships also enable individual members to compete in local, national and international events.

Board Meetings

The NOPC Board of Directors meets quarterly at the Inn at Long Lake. All members are welcome to attend and participate.
