UNTDA Board Committees
Properly mandated and run Committees engage supplemental human resources to expand the effectiveness of the Board of Directors, allow more thorough and detailed examination of issues and provide opportunities for members at large to participate in and contribute to the strengthening of the Association.

All people who joined the Canadian Naval Reserves as officers or cadets are automatically treated as members. While the Association began with the UNTD, the Membership Committee, working with the theme, “It’s all about connections…”, seeks to search out and collect contact information for former NAVRES officer cadets of the UNTD, ROUTP, NROC UNTD2, RESO and subsequent junior officer training programs.
The Committee will create and execute programs to appeal to members to “Count Yourself In” in order to fully enjoy membership benefits including up-to-date bulletins about the impending centennial celebration of the Naval Reserves in 2023. Members interested in contributing to these efforts are encouraged to contact the committee chair here.
Acting Chair: Bill Clearihue
Members: Ian Barker, Glenn Carroll
The UNTDA Archivist is charged with gathering and collating material relating to reserve officer naval training in Canada, and specifically, with maintaining a database of all participants, public elements of which database are published on the UNTDA web site. In recognition of the magnitude of this (volunteer) job, especially maintenance of the Nominal List, and of the need to expand its work to a) actively solicit more material, b) gather material in one place or at least document material and its location, and c) identify a perpetual repository (ies) for both physical and digital material, the UNTDA board hereby establishes the Archives Committee to collabourate with and support the Archivist in his responsibilities.
Chair: Nick Slonosky
Members: Bill Clearihue, Barry Frewer, Phil Anido, Paul Seguna, Daniel Haché, Ross Connell
A cohesive communications strategy will ensure the messages we put out in our Newsletter, Web Site, email bulletins, etc are consistent with our mission and goals and that we have sufficient depth of volunteer resources to perpetuate our communications. To this end, the board establishes a Communications Committee. The Committee will recruit members who are prepared to carry on the work of Newsletter Editor Bill Clearihue, maintain the Web Site and issue bulletins as appropriate.
