Event bids (Canadian Championships and North American Championships) have habitually been received and voted on at the AGM, but our by-laws do not require that event bids be voted on by the general membership at the AGM. The COF Board of Directors is soliciting bids for the 2014 Canadian Orienteering Championships and the 2014 North American Orienteering Championships. We would like interested associations to submit their bid document by July 31, 2011 and the COF Board of Directors will consider all bids and make the decisions shortly after.

Item 1.
Submitted by the COF Board of Directors
Motion to change the headquarters of the COF from Dorval, Quebec to Calgary, Alberta.

Item 2.
Submitted by the Ontario Orienteering Association
The OOA asks that the standard liability coverage in COF’s orienteering insurance policy be increased from $2M per occurrence to $5M per occurrence to accommodate the trend in landowner requests for higher coverage and the different insurance needs of navigation activities such as mountain bike orienteering.

Other new business items to be submitted to the COF, by July 8, 2011. They will be posted here.
