Updates from the Chief: Introducing a new E-Newsletter feature

Updates From Chief

Aug 9, 2016

I am so pleased that CPS-ECP has now completed arrangements for the publication of e-newsletters in both of our official languages. This is a great achievement for us as we modernize our communications tools and the ways in which we share with each other timely and useful information about CPS-ECP activities at all levels of our great organization. I encourage you all to submit your news or success stories such as your summer Rendez-Vous, a successful seminar or something you are proud of and agree to share. By doing so, your CPS-ECP friends can learn about the variety of activities we undertake across Canada.

Members have responded very positively in accessing the information provided in the English-language e-newsletter and I expect the new French-language version, that has just been issued, will be just as big a success. And now that we have these two e-newsletters, I am starting a new feature, called “Updates from the Chief”, which I hope will appear frequently so I can keep you informed about our various activities and plans as together we continue to renew and re-energize CPS-ECP and build on our accomplishments and the new foundations we built with the significant milestone of our new structures and regulations/bylaws.

The momentum continues. The evolution of CPS-ECP which began with those key changes continues. There are many changes and developments underway and there will be more to follow which build on that solid, updated foundation as we all work together to strengthen and evolve in the 21st century.

There are key pieces underway now which I will be updating you on. And so, with that introduction, let me start with my first update below which focuses on updated/refreshed statements of our collective CPS-ECP Vision, Mission, and Values.

Future updates will discuss CPS-ECP strategic priorities and planning activities and IT renewal activities.

Throw away the box, this is some fresh thinking

Seemingly part sailboat and part spaceship, the new Jeanneau Yachts 55 just busted through the boundaries of traditional yacht design. I couldn’t take my eyes off the bubble hardtop that met me at the dock and I stepped aboard with trepidation. A few hours later, I was planning how to spend my not-yet-won lottery winnings.

Paving the Way to Cleaner Boating – How a Commitment to Reducing our Environmental Impact is Inspiring Cleaner Boating in Ontario

By Dave Rozycki

Over the past seven decades, Ontario’s marina industry has developed alongside some of Canada’s largest freshwater lakes. Boaters have been able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and create lasting memories on the water, with certain marinas dating back to the 1960s. As we reflect on this rich history, we can begin to see trends in how our footprint may have had an effect on the environment, in not-so-positive ways. However, by embracing innovative solutions and adopting sustainable practices, both marinas and boaters hold the key to preserving and enhancing the quality of our lakes and marine life for generations to come.
