We’ve been working with Alpine Ski Alpin to develop a new definition for ‘registered participant’. The intention is for this new definition to be used in their bylaws and policies as part of their transition to compliance under the federal NFP Act.
The working definition is below:
Registered Participants are those individuals who are engaged in activities that are provided, sponsored, supported or sanctioned by Alpine Canada Alpin. Without limiting the generality of this definition, Registered Participants include, but are not limited to: recreational and competitive skiers, members of national alpine ski teams in all disciplines, coaches, officials, event organizers, administrators of provincial and territorial ski associations and local ski clubs, members of provincial and territorial ski associated and related alpine ski associations, and volunteers who serve on local executives, committees and boards of directors. In all cases, the identity of such individuals is recorded with a local ski club, a provincial or territorial alpine ski association, a related alpine ski association, or Alpine Canada Alpin. Registered Participants may pay a program or license fee for services received
