The CSCTA Board of Directors met
in Toronto over three days earlier this week to discuss the future strategic direction
of the CSCTA.
After three years as the
President of the CSCTA, Peter Carpenter has stepped down from the
leadership role. CSCTA Board Member and Head Coach of Dalhousie
University, Lance Cansdale will assume the role of President.
Carpenter cited a desire to step
back in order to concentrate more time on other projects and also with his
McGill University where he is the Head Coach.
He will remain on the Board as the 1st Vice President and
lead the Awards & Recognition portfolio.
Carpenter was first elected to
the Board in November 2009 and has served as a Director at Large and Domestic
Director before moving to President in 2015. During his tenure Carpenter
has presided over the growth of the CSCTA in many areas including the
Association’s development of new funding and education opportunities including
the Mentorship and Apprenticeship programs.
On behalf of the CSCTA Board of Directors
and entire membership I would like to take this opportunity to thank Peter for
his service and leadership in the role of CSCTA President for the last 3
