Minutes of CAFA Executive Meeting

July 8, 2002


Kirk Krack, Mandy Cruickshank, Ken McCallum, Tom Lightfoot

Call to Order

This meeting was held at CAFA Headquarters, 106 - 3533 West 4th Avenue in Vancouver. The meeting was called to order at 6:42 pm.


Kirk reported that Perry Gladstone is starting a club in Toronto. Perry has created a website and has drafted some club bylaws. All he needs now to become a CAFA recognized club is a third board member who is a CAFA member.

Kirk will be holding a clinic in Ottawa from July 12th to 14th and is hoping to stir up some interest in starting up a club in that area.

Tom has created an online Bylaw Maker to make it easier to deal with the administration of starting a club. The bylaws and constitution are based on those put out for the British Columbia Society Act.


Kirk reported that he had had a meeting the previous day with Bob Ross of AllSport Insurance. They went through CAFA's application and he was impressed with the safety protocols. Bob will pass the application on to their underwriter. Bob will get back to Kirk on July 19th.

At the meeting Kirk recieved an AllSport pamphlet on Loss Control. He will review the material to see if there are any other ways that CAFA can improve its insurability.
