Update from the Directors:
This letter is to inform everyone that there have been some changes to the Board of Directors for 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation Canada. The Federation is comprised of a Board of Directors, and is supported by the Executive Committee. Previously, the Board of Directors included Herb Veckenstedt, the President of 100% RAW Canada, Mike Proskow, and Adam Price. The Executive Committee included the Board of Directors, as well as Megan Bain, Barrett Donavan, and Kathleen MacDonald.
As Adam Price steps back to tend to his family, Jordie MacInnes and I, Kathleen MacDonald, have been appointed to the Board of Directors and we will act as co-managers for 100% RAW Powerlifting Federation Canada. The 100% RAW Board of Directors now consists of the 100% RAW President Herb Veckenstedt, Vice President Mike Proskow, Jordie MacInnes and Kathleen MacDonald. Jordie comes to the Federation with over 30 years of experience in the fitness industry as a competitor and as a coach. Many of you have seen me, Kathleen, around either on the platform competing, or volunteering at meets, and recently as a member of the Executive Committee. I love this Federation and its members, and I have an immense desire to see it expand and flourish.
Both Jordie and I are working on expanding the foundation that Herb, Adam and Mike have created. We are formalizing the meet process to reduce the burden on meet directors, ensuring that no one person is tasked with unmanageable meet expectations. We will also be working with the Executive Committee to ensure that all the scheduled meets take place and run efficiently and on budget. The RAW Executive Committee includes all Board members as well as Megan Bain and Barrett Donavan. We have had numerous members volunteer to take on bigger roles and responsibilities and become part of the Executive. We continue to have Des Peddle working in the background keeping our records up to date. We will have an announcement in the near future regarding all of our current and new Executive members, providing a description of their roles and responsibilities.
Please, any questions, concerns, or comments that you may have, may be submitted to and either Jordie or I will respond promptly. Jordie and I are both monitoring the email account, and are working diligently with meet Directors to ensure that their needs are being met.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt thanks to Adam Price for his many years of helping build the foundations of this Federation, assisting to grow it into what we all know and love today. He has put in a tremendous amount of work over the years and the membership and Executive are extremely grateful.
Jordie and I are both very excited to take on the co-manager role and to grow this Federation. We are looking forward to working with the 100% RAW Board of Directors, the 100% RAW Executive, the 100% RAW Meet Directors and the 100% RAW Membership, to ensure that your vision is our vision!
Jordie MacInnes and Kathleen MacDonald
