  2. Auckland Region Outrigger Canoe Association Board Nominations closing 8th May

    To all AROCA Clubs We have recently had two board members stand down after a much appreciated time on the board. Sandra Staub and Josh Perese have been members of the Board since its inception in 2015. Both Sandra and Josh have made a great contribution the Region, not only in furthering our strategic goals (especially, Sandra with finance and Josh with competition), but also at the AROCA events throughout the year. Unfortunately, changed work pressures for both Sandra and Josh has led to their resignations. Both the Board, and we are sure all our member clubs, thank them for their support and input over that time, and we wish them well. In accordance with the AROCA Constitution we wish to fill these Board vacancies.
