Dodgeball Canada Board of Directors Announcement
The Board of Directors at Dodgeball Canada (DC) is excited to announce the appointment of Graeme Morrison as the newest member of the board effectively immediately. The board unanimously agreed for Graeme to fill the vacant role of Co-Director of Media and Communications that was left following the departure of Chris Berry earlier this summer.
Graeme has been heavily involved with Dodgeball Canada behind the scenes sitting on the media and communications subcommittee where he played an integral role forming Dodgeball Canada’s media strategy. To-date he has solicited top-tier media coverage for Dodgeball Canada in the Toronto Star, VICE Sports and 680 News in support of the 2016 DC National Tournament and the World Dodgeball Federation World Championship. Graeme’s love for dodgeball started at the Humber College Lakeshore Campus, where he was captain twice during his four-year tenure with the team. In his final year at Humber, he was named MVP and Lakeshore Male Athlete of the Year for his dedication to the sport. He now serves as the assistant coach of the Lakeshore Hawks. When he’s not involved in Dodgeball, Graeme works for a public relations firm, where he specializes in media relations for a portfolio of consumer brands.
On behalf of Dodgeball Canada and the Board of Directors, we officially welcome Graeme to the executive.
Lastly, we’d like to announce that as of December 31st, Dave Kutner’s term as Director of Sponsorship will end. Dave has played an integral part in helping Dodgeball Canada achieve its year one vision and will remain involved through subcommittees and other initiatives. We'd like to thank Dave for his valuable insights and contributions to the Board. Duane Wysynski and Bethel Lascano will oversee the sponsorship portfolio in the interim until a new director is announced.
