The Story So Far
- What is the fund for?
What domain names do we use?
- In a word, promotion. Promotion of iaido and jodo in Canada.
What does it cost to join the fund?
What is the period of membership?
- Membership is by voluntary donation. There is no minimum or
maximum amount expected, and you do not have to be an active member of
the arts to donate.
What, specifically, do we fund?
- There is no fixed period of membership. As a member you will
have access to financial information about the fund and you will see
what funds are necessary and when. Regular reports on the fund will be
available to the members.
Who administers the fund?
- We have strategic plans in place for both iaido and jodo in
Canada and we expect that the funding support will be directed toward
those plans. However, if you have a great idea we want to hear it and
there are no restrictions on funding suggestions.
What do we offer in the restricted membership area?
- The fund is directed day to day by a steering committee
- The fund has a board of directors consisting of the Canadian
Iaido 6dan and Jodo 5dan
- Treasurer (non-voting): Pam Morgan
- Secretary (non-voting): Kim Taylor
What this fund is not.
- List of directors and members
- directors discussion documents
- training videos and text not available publicly (records of
seminars etc.) Note: videos, training notes and other such
things should not be made publicly available (video taken at an
instructional class is not utube-appropriate in the same way as
video from public demonstrations).
- We may also offer ways for those in
more remote areas to contact our senior sensei with questions about
training and other sorts of things. The intent is to keep things simple
at the moment and decide where we want to go with the website. Of
course one of the main things you will see soon in the membership area
reports on where we have spent the money.
Questions and comments can be directed to the Secretary, Kim Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or
to any Canadian iaido 6dan or jodo 5dan.
- The Canadian Iaido and Jodo Fund is not an organization, there
is no intent that this fund will serve any function beyond being a
place for the students of iaido and jodo in Canada to pool their
financial resources and apply them to promotion and improvement of the
arts. This is something that the senior ranks of the arts have been
doing on an ad hoc basis for over 30 years and we are simply
formalizing our efforts and allowing more students to become involved
in the process.
