Ladies & Gentlemen:
Vice Commodore Philip Matticks and Recorder Tisha Matticks have resigned their positions on the Houston Canoe Club board of directors. They will remain active members of the club and we can see them on the water. The club is grateful for their contributions to the membership during their tenure in those positions.
As a result of this, these two board positions are now open to be filled by willing and capable candidates. If you wish to serve the HCC membership to support your love of paddle sports, now is the time to consider stepping up and volunteering for one of these positions.
The following are excerpts from the Club Constitution which outline the duties of board members in general, and the roles of Vice Commodore and Recorder in particular.
