The 2021/22 OLBA affiliation fee will be $30. This includes the contribution for Bowls Canada as well, which has switched to a flat fee structure for the provincial associations instead of a per member fee.
Insurance - It was noted that all clubs MUST comply with all required protocols in the event there is still a pandemic situation. Any non-compliance could result in the loss of insurance coverage. If anyone has any questions regarding the insurance coverage, they are to contact John Fantin, OLBA Treasurer at email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership Rosters - It is crucial that the names of any new members who joined in 2020 or who you know for certain are not going to return to your club be sent to Elaine Stevenson at email@example.com.
The OLBA will be using the 2019 roster plus or minus the above additions or deletions for the purpose of accident insurance coverage as well as for invoicing of the 2021 affiliation fees for only those named individuals.
During the 2021 season, clubs should forward the names of new or non-returning members to Elaine periodically throughout the season with the first installment being no later than the end of June.
Club Executives - It is also crucial that names of your club executives be sent to Elaine Stevenson.
Police Checks - It is also mandatory for club executives, board of directors and coaches to have police checks that are current. The OLBA will reimburse clubs with proper documentation up to $15 for each police check completed.
