On behalf of the Paddle Canada, its board of directors and committees, I would like to wish you a Happy New Year. Paddle Canada had a very successful 2015 and saw more growth in courses and membership.  Thanks for your help in that success. We are expecting that trend to continue in 2016.  

January 1 marks the beginning of the renewal time for instructor members.  Renew by now and by January 15 to receive all 4 Issues of your choice of Rapid Media magazine title. We hope we can count on your support again in 2016.

Please note the membership rate increases to $90 per year and will be fixed here for at least 3 years. The last rate increase was in 2013. There were many reasons for this decision: 

  • increased costs of business (software, bank fees, legal and accounting services, office expenses).
  • finance the replacement of our 7 year old online software to manage our membership, certification and course registration – up to $30,000 is needed.
  • provide special project funding of $15,000 or more annually, over next 3 years, towards Instructor Development (more online resources, certification maintenance clinics) and French translation of program manuals.

We appreciate your support as we take on these new projects.

Sincerely,

Graham Ketcheson
Executive Director
