Past Chair Paul Addison elected to Curling Canada board

Curl BC would like to congratulate Past Chair Paul Addison on being elected to Curling Canada’s Board of Governors last week at the National Curling Congress in Ottawa.

Paul was elected as Curl BC’s first ever Governor at Large in 2013, and his accomplishments over the last five years with Curl BC have included initiating the creation of a Member Engagement Committee. He served as the Board’s Chair during the 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.

“Paul has been with Curl BC for the past five seasons and has been an integral part of the Board,” said Curl BC Chair Peter Muir. “His dedication to our sport in BC will be missed. We know Paul will continue with this same dedication in his new role as Governor with Curling Canada.”

Active in the BC curling community for many years as an athlete and a coach, Paul initiated the creation of the Glen Meadows Curling Association and was awarded the 2010 Curl BC Club Volunteer of the Year award along with two of his colleagues.

“Paul did a great job for Curl BC,” said Curl BC CEO Scott Braley. “He volunteered a lot of his time to create and refine policies for the Board which have led to an improved Governance model for the organization. His extensive experience working for the Federal Ministry responsible for Forestry will serve him well as he takes on a national volunteer leadership role with Curling Canada.”

“I am indeed looking forward to working on the Board of Governors of Curling Canada and to be part of all it brings to curling,” said Paul. “It is bittersweet however, as I need to leave Curl BC and the great colleagues and staff that I have been proud to have worked with for the past five years.

“This is a great opportunity for me to grow in my understanding of Canadian curling and to contribute to its continuing development. The partnership between Curling Canada and Curl BC has so much knowledge and skill to contribute and my personal mission will be to encourage curling centres to use it to be bigger and better than they ever dreamed possible.”
