BC Sailing Association Executive Director and Other Announcements

After many years at the helm of BC Sailing Association (BCSA), Tine Moberg-Parker the BCSA’s Executive Director and Coach has departed to commence the next chapter of her career.

During her time with BCSA, Tine inspired many new sailors and we wish her the best of luck in her future endeavours.

A part-time interim Executive Director, Bruce Goldsmid, has been appointed.  Bruce recently retired after many years as the CEO of BC Alpine Ski Association. Bruce’s appointment will ensure continuity and will aid the transition to a new permanent Executive Director.

During this transition period, we are pleased to announce that Jen Braem will assume additional responsibilities in her new role as Programs Manager which are in addition to her marketing and communications role.  Her responsibilities include management of the strategic plan, operations and finances as well as working closely with the part-time interim Executive Director and the Board of Directors to ensure continuity for all of our programs.

The Board has great confidence in the team at BCSA. You can reach the staff at:

Interim Executive Director: Bruce Goldsmid, execdirector@bcsailing.bc.ca

High Performance Coach: Kevin Black,  kevin@bcsailing.bc.ca

Marketing and Communications: Jen Braem, business@bcsailing.bc.ca

Program Management: Jen Braem, business@bcsailing.bc.ca

The search for a new full time Executive Director is underway. During this transition period, it is our priority to find the best qualified individual to lead BCSA, while still maintaining a stable and effective organization. We will be posting the job posting for the Executive Director on the BCSA website shortly and ask for your assistance in identifying suitable candidates to lead BCSA going forward.

We are excited about the next chapter of BCSA’s development working with Sail Canada, ViaSport, Sport BC and other stakeholders as we continue to support our Members.
