We ask that people who are expressing interest do so on or before July 1st to allow the agenda and election details to be finalized.
Metro West Force has obtained the assistance from someone outside of the current board to compile the names and conduct the election at the AGM.
We strive to provide a fair and equal opportunity to anyone wishing to be involved. We hope to attract people who have a passion and interest to consistently and innovatively push the game to the next level. We firmly feel our Membership and Players deserve it.
Our organization continues to grow and develop. To support that growth, we need to reorganize and change. To make these changes, we need your help.
The Metro West Force Executive Board is recommending a new structure for the Board, captured in a revised set of By-Laws. These By-Laws will be presented and voted upon by you, the members, at the Metro West Female Hockey Association Annual General Meeting (AGM) on July 7, 7-9pm at the HRM 4-Pad. Changing the By-Laws requires a Special Resolution, which means that we need a three-fourths majority of voters to vote in favour of the changes.
What do we need from you?
First, we're asking for your support for these changes, as the "shareholders" of Metro West Force. The proposed new By-Laws are attached to this message. We have also created a two-page explainer that gives an overview of the new structure and highlights other significant changes. That document is also attached. Please read and review these documents, and come to the AGM prepared to vote. We will also be holding an online Town Hall on June 23 at 7pm, where the Governance and Structure Working Group will present the changes, and be prepared to answer your questions. The Google Meets invitation for the Town Hall will be sent out soon.
Longer-term, we need great people like you to fill the positions on the new Board and its sub-committees! If the new By-Laws are approved at the AGM, we'll be moving immediately to elections to fill the positions on the Board. After you have reviewed the new structure, feel free to reach out to any current Board members to talk about your interest in playing a leadership role in our organization.
