Re: Requirement for letter of motivation:

August 20th 2006

To Whom It May Concern,

My name is Vincent Vaillancourt owner of Distance Vol Libre FlyingSchool (one of the biggest schools in Canada). Each year, we dohundreds of tandem flights for new clients.

As recommended by the board, I am submitting to you my request for atandem 2 rating. Here in Quebec there are a lot of people that wouldlike to be able to get their Tandem 1 rating. Since there are not manypeople in Quebec that have their Tandem 2 rating, this becomesdifficult for these people to obtain this goal.

I know that with my expertise and experience I have as an instructorand tandem pilot, I would be an excellent candidate to become a Tandem2 instructor. I have over 500 tandem flightsand 10 years of experience in free flying.

I would be very proud to be able to certify new pilots, giving them asecure and complete course. For me, the most important point whenteaching the students is the importance of security in flight. I wantto pass on to them my experience and knowledge.

I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.

Vincent Vaillancourt

François Thibodeau:

I recommend Vincent Vaillancourt for his PG Tandem II rating.

He meets all the criteria for this rating. He is safety oriented, very skilled and demonstrate a great maturity when teaching to others.

He has been managing DVL and its team of instructors for the past 4 seasons with a great sense of responsibility.

I have known him for over 10 years and I am very confident that he will take this new responsability very seriously.

You will find attached his letter of motivation as requested by the board of directors.

Do not hesitate to contact me for any questions.

HPAC/ACVL vote 2006-11-07 - funding for seminar attendance

This seminar is in Marlene's area, and she's asked if we'd like her to attend and if so if we'd spring the $30 fee. Should we? Could knowing more about this stuff be useful?

Directors' and Officers' Liability and Beyond
Topics covered:
* The legal duties of Directors and Officers of Charities and Not-for-Profits
* Due diligence in avoiding risks for Directors and Officers of Charities and Not-for-Profits
* How to avoid legal liability in Fundraising

As a result of statutory and common law developments, directors and officers of charitable and not-for-profit corporations are more exposed to personal liability for their own actions or inactions, as well as joint and several liability with other members of the board of directors for errors that may occur in the operation of their organizations. This comprehensive seminar will provide an overview of the extent of liability being faced by directors and officers of charities and not-for-profit organizations and the steps that can be taken to reduce their exposure to liability.
