AGM Update and New Board

Happy Sunday Everyone,

We wanted to provide an update post AGM as we know not everyone could attend.

The key points from the AGM were questions surrounding Diversity and Inclusion, Financials, as well as the parent and coach feedback survey.

At the AGM we could not introduce a new by-law based on the by-law requirements at that time. However, within the new structure it is a major part of our portfolio’s and is something that Metro West Force is committed to. Furthermore, we will be taking the points under advisement for future considerations in governance change. With the current board re-structure, we have 4/11 positions or 36% occupied by females.  When we elect our Athlete representative this will push this number to 5/11 or 45% of positions occupied by females. We still have a vacancy for Director of Membership Growth, and we are encouraging anyone who is interested to reach out to any board member. For further specifics on the role of Director of Membership Growth please contact a board member.

Financially, we had inquiries around a further breakdown of finances. Stay tuned for more information regarding this.

Also stay tuned for more information regarding the parent/coach feedback survey results.

As mentioned, new by-laws were implemented which resulted in a new Board structure. Elections were completed and a new board was formed. After the first board meeting, two other positions were filled.

A warm welcome to the following members:

President – Tim Sheppard (NEW)

VP Hockey Standards – Mike Almond (Returning)

VP Finance – Kelly Peck (NEW previously vacant position)

VP Hockey for Life – Greg Saunders (Returning)

VP Safe Sport – Warren Feltham (NEW)

Director of Coach Development – Amanda Boulegon (NEW)

Director of Administration – Marge Ancliffe (NEW)

Director of Hockey Operations – Peter Giles (Returning)

Director of Membership Experience – Genaya Cameron (NEW)

Director of Membership Growth – Vacant

Director of Athlete Representative – Vacant

For the board members that will not be returning, we have huge gratitude for all your contributions to Metro West Force.  Without your efforts we would not be where we are today.

Thank you everyone for your continued support.

Metro West Force Executive.
