    President and Vice President

    The President and the Vice President are responsible for ensuring that members of the Executive Board of Directors:

    • are aware of and fulfill their governance responsibilities;
    • comply with applicable laws and bylaws;
    • conduct board business effectively and efficiently;
    • are accountable for their performance.

    The President is generally the spokesperson for the group and is the close contact to Vancouver Whitecaps FC. The President is assigned one extra vote to break ties at board meetings and general meetings.

    In the event of the President's absence, the Vice President assumes their extra vote to break ties at board meetings and general meetings. The Vice President also assumes the duties and responsibilities of the President as outlined above until their return.

    Only elected directors - Club Treasurer, Club Secretary or Members at Large - can be voted to the role of President & Vice President. The vote will take place after the elections of the directors and ombudsman are concluded.

    It is important to note that only official, dues-paying members of the Southsiders can nominate a candidate. To assist with verification purposes, persons nominating others must self-identify as a member in good standing. The proposed candidate must also accept the nomination in writing on the discussion forum.

    It is recommended that candidates provide a statement within the appropriate discussion thread to provide the General Membership with a sense of their personal background, experience and expertise, particularly as those things relate to the board position in question.

    Nominees have the right to decline their nomination by a third party or withdraw their nomination at any time prior to the Annual General Meeting.

    The final deadline for nominations is 1:30 pm on December 7th, 2018.

    I'm Peter Czimmermann, member #124 in good standing and I'd like to put my name forward to serve as President in 2019.

    I've been on the Southsiders' executive board since 2012, I was the major driver behind starting up our GA initiative, and also managed to transition our group through the incorporation and other required legal processes.

    I strongly believe that this group and its activities should be built around supporting the Whitecaps in the stands, and in making sure that everyone is welcome to join in and participate.

    As I have shown in the past many years, I am a Southsider and soccer supporter through and through. My promise to you is my undying dedication to the success and the future of the Southside.

    I hope that together we can reinvigorate our group, and look forward to being part of it.

    Cheers.
