Does anyone else know any more about this?
2 years ago, the British Canoe Union changed its trading name to British Canoeing and at the same time England lost its identity as the Canoe England name was retired.
This change has caused much confusion for many people involved in canoeing as it is no longer possible for people to identify when things are being done on behalf of the whole of the UK and when they are being done exclusively by/for England.
At this year's AGM it is proposed to change the name of the company from BCU to British Canoeing, removing reference to the Union which has worked so well for canoeists across the UK for many years.
It is also proposed to introduce a right of veto by the Board on the appointments made by the Home Nations of their representatives on the Board.
If, like me, you are concerned about these changes and would like to stop the process before it is too late then please complete this short survey to register your concern. If you don't agree please also complete it to allow a balanced view to emerge.
