Re: CC looking for help (again)

Development Officer wanted : https://cricketcanada.org/news-single?nid=103 From the requirements, I would think they already have someone in mind. It is a bit unlikely they would get many applicants with the qualifications for this part-time position. A relevant tertiary degree/diploma Certified L2 ...

Challenge League A postponed: https://cricketcanada.org/news-single?nid=101 With political, business and sporting events/conferences being cancelled/postponed worldwide, I was wondering whether COVID-19 would also affect this tournament.
