Program and Policy Development Updates
(Updated February 11, 2017)
A couple of the major projects that the PDC is planning to work on throughout our policy development period (September to March each year) include:
- Full program review – The multi-year full review of the sea kayak program is currently underway. We are still sifting through all the results from the member survey we did back in the summer but it’s critical in helping to set the direction to the full-program review. We are planning on having an update for the membership in March, 2016 or earlier.
