Weather’s warming up! It’s time to go paddling!
It is also the time to hold paddle sports related events. Many of these events request the IPC to staff an informational table or booth. Last year we participated in at least a dozen such events, passing out literature, and when electricity is provided, running the dam simulator.
We need help keeping up with all of the requests we receive. It really is a fun way to meet a lot of people, and help promote the sport to new people.
Please contract our Director of PR and Marketing: Sigrid Pilgrim at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would want to spend a day or two representing paddlesports and the IPC.
We have a few open board-level positions we are looking to recruit. A voice serves the role of a Liaison between the special paddling interest they represent and the IPC board.
Currently open positions include a voice for Southern IL paddlers, Flat Water Paddlers, NorthWest Il Paddlers, Sea Kayakers, and paddle sports businesses.
Our Member clubs are also invited to appoint a voice of their paddling club to serve on our board.
President, Illinois Paddling Council
