2017 RRRC Competitions Committee Elections

The Red River Rugby Competitions Committee election period is now open. All elected members of the Competitive Region Committees will remain on an automatically renewing one-year term unless:

  • Committee member resignation
  • A team calls for an election and nominates a new candidate as the representative for their division & gender
  • Should a seat be vacated or challenged, nominations will be accepted and the teams within that Division will vote in an election for the representative(s) of their division. In the case of a tie the CR Committee Chair casts deciding vote.
