CANSI Membership Types

MEMBERSHIP TYPES

PROFESSIONAL

A professional member of CANSI is any member residing in Canada who successfully completes a cross country or telemark instructor certification course conducted by CANSI, attends a refresher every three years, and pays yearly membership dues. A professional member has full voting rights, is entitled to liability insurance while teaching nordic skiing and is entitled to the latest technical information via newsletters, manuals, and the website. The professional membership fee is included as part of the registration fee for both the cross country and telemark Level I instructor certification courses.

ASSOCIATE

An associate member of CANSI is any member residing in Canada who no longer meets the requirements of professional membership but still pays yearly membership dues. This includes members who have allowed their certification to lapse and members who have not successfully completed an instructor certification course conducted by CANSI. An associate member has full voting rights and is entitled to the latest technical information via newsletters, manuals, and the website but is not entitled to liability insurance. If an associate member re-certifies within a ten year period of his/her last professional status or successfully completes an instructor certification course, he/she will then achieve professional status provided that he/she complies with all other requirements established by the National Board.

HONORARY

An honorary member of CANSI is any person or organization who has been appointed by the National Board on the basis of their contribution to CANSI or to the sport of nordic skiing in general. An honorary member has full voting rights and is entitled to the latest technical information via newsletters, manuals, and the website, but is not covered by a liability insurance. An honorary member is not required to pay yearly dues.
