Call for Nominations for the Lindsay Park Sports Society
Board of Governors

The Lindsay Park Sports Society (LPSS) is seeking nominations for the Board of Governors which oversees the management and operation of the Talisman Centre. We are seeking qualified individuals who are passionate about the future of Talisman Centre, are committed to the dual mandate for both sport organizations and the public, and are looking for a rewarding volunteer role.

The LPSS was formed in 1983 to manage and operate a facility then named the Lindsay Park Sports Centre. The Centre was built to accommodate athletes participating in the Western Canada Summer Games and to provide a sports centre legacy for Calgarians into the future. Talisman Centre, as it is now known, is owned by the City of Calgary and managed by the LPSS on behalf of Calgarians pursuant to a Management and Operating Agreement between the City and the LPSS. The LPSS is a not-for-profit society and operates as a civic partner of the City of Calgary.

Nominees must be willing to serve on the Board for a minimum of 2 years (April 2016 – April 2018). Refer to the Governor Position Description (below) for additional details.
