Previous members of the Belize Canoe Association (BCAnoe) interim Board consist of Jerry Wilken, Joe Fusy and John Watt Searle.

It was first governed by a tri-chairmanship comprised of its founders: Elvin Penner, Julian Sherrard, and Luis Garcia. The then board was selected by the three chairmen. Their plans were to lay the groundwork for the association with regards to races, canoe fests, and Belize's participation in the international arena of canoeing. As soon as all of these have been accomplished, we will call elections to nominate a democratically elected president an board of directors.

Here is a list of the previous board members:

Tri-Chair: Julian Sherrard, Elvin Penner, Luis Garcia Board

Members: Mike Green, Ruth Guttierez, Cesar Bedran, Daniel Guttierez
