Who are we?
We are a volunteer organization formed to assist the Livingstone Ski Academy. The volunteer board is voted in at the AGM with positions including president, vice–president and directors, with no set terms. As with any board, the greater the diversity of the board members, the better representative the Board is of the association.
What do we do?
The LSAS assists LSA in three primary ways:
- The Board members, as well as individual parents attending meetings, provide feedback to LSA on how the program is running as well as opinions on proposed updates. It is important to note that the focus of the LSAS is to provide feedback that can be used to guide the program, but is NOT to implement policy or program changes.
- LSAS helps to provide financial support to LSA. In order to keep fees as low as possible, the LSAS was established to provide additional funding to the LSA program to provide for expenses over and above coaching and transportation, such as clothing, fun days, ski storage shack and the ski trailer. The target amount identified by LSA for LSAS to raise for the Ski Academy program is $20,000 per year through sponsorship, grants, fundraising and the year end Gala.
- LSAS also assists the Livingstone School District to identify potential host families for billeting international students taking part in LSA.
How do I get involved?
The best way to become involved is to attend our AGM, this year on Thursday, September 27. From there you can decide how you can best help out – by attending meetings, running for a board position, assisting with sponsorship or fundraisers or volunteering at events.
