Available Board/Executive Positions – Here is a list of all the positions that are becoming available and are open to nominations, in brackets you will see the term duration::

  • President (mandate will be until 2027 AGM), ** Current President will not be re-offering **
  • Secretary (mandate will be until 2026 AGM),
  • Director at Large (mandate will be until 2026 AGM),
  • Director at Large (mandate will be until 2026 AGM),
  • Athlete Director (nominated by High Performance Committee, ratified at AGM, mandate will be until 2025 AGM),

We do not take any “in session” nominations. This is necessary in order for us to prepare for AGM materials, preppare online voting option, and to make the process as smooth as possible.  Any unfilled positions at completion of AGM will be chosen by members of the board/executive as per bylaws.

Nomination Process: Should you be interested in any of the positions, here is the nomination process:

  • Nominations will not be accepted from the floor.
  • Any Voting Member of KNS may nominate another member to be one of the
    members of the Board/Executive.  (Each dojo has 2 voting members, please check with your dojo),
  • There is no limit on how many nominations a voting member puts forward.
  • Members could be nominated for more than one position.
  • Nomination must be submitted to the KNS Technical Director (td@karatens.org) by April 20th.
  • Submission must include details that note the individual doing the nominating, the nominee, the position being nominated for, and an overview of interest, experience, skills that the nominee will bring to the board/executive.  These details will be provided to the voting members at the AGM so that they can make a better informed decision.
  • You do not have to be a head instructor or senior member of a dojo to have your name put forward for any of the vacancies, you just need to be willing to volunteer time and energy and work with team to make a difference!

Get involved, collaborate and spread the love of the art and sport! Many hands make light work!
