BC Adaptive Snowsports announces a Request for Proposal (“RFP”) for planning and implementation services for its 2014 Annual Gala. The intent of the RFP is to identify and select an experienced event planner that will be responsible for planning, coordination, design and implementation of a single evening gala for the purposes of volunteer/participant recognition, donor management, fundraising and increased public awareness.
Five British Columbia athletes, four of which are BC Adaptive Snowsports alumni, lead the mix of veterans and young guns nominated to Canada's para-alpine team for the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games. Caleb Brousseau (Terrace - BCAS Alumni), Josh Dueck (Kimberley - BCAS Alumni), Matt Hallet (Coquitlam - BCAS Alumni), Kimberly Joines (Rossland) and Braydon Luscombe (Duncan - BCAS Aumni) are among thirteen of the nation's best para-alpine skiers who will compete in Sochi. The diverse team roster is a strong combination of accomplished veterans and a talent pool of up-and-comers.
A partnership agreement has been reached between the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance and the various associations representing Adaptive Alpine Snow Sports within Canada in the interest of exploring opportunities to share and collaborate on common initiatives related to instructor education, training and certification.
