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.

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

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.

MOTIONS
Motion 1
Moved by the COF Board of Directors
That the COF Constitution and by-laws be amended as presented.

Motion 2
Moved by Stig Skarborn and seconded by Heath Johnson
That the COF create a $5,000 “Team Leaders subsidy Assistance” package to offset Team Leader travel expenses for assisting the Canadian junior team at international events.  The travel expenses that would be considered eligible for the program are: air fare and accommodations.  The amount of individual funding support will be based on the actual and eligible amount of the travel expenses.  The total amount of the financial assistance may not exceed $5,000.
The Team Leaders must be approved by the COF and only the qualified “Team Leaders” would be eligible for the assistance.  The funding for the program would be supported from the collection of dues from the provincial and territorial clubs.
