Highlighted AGM voting items:
There is one By-Law amendment to submit for membership vote. This was suggested last year which surrounding Diversity and Inclusion. The suggested amendment is bolded and underlined below:
2.0 STATUS OF THE ASSOCIATION
2.1. MWFHA is a member of Hockey Nova Scotia, the governing body of amateur hockey in Nova Scotia; an amateur hockey player is one who is not participating in organized professional hockey.
2.2. MWFHA shall conduct itself to the betterment of female hockey within the Halifax Region as defined by Hockey Nova Scotia. MWFHA recognizes that historically, hockey has not been welcoming to women as participants, coaches, or leaders. MWFHA believes that the betterment of female hockey can only be achieved with greater participation from women in all roles, including leadership of the organization.
2.3. MWFHA shall exercise the authorities granted to it by Hockey Nova Scotia, and as a Member of Hockey Nova Scotia shall comply with the by-laws, policies, rules, and regulations of Hockey Nova Scotia and its Councils.
2.4. MWFHA shall create a Board of Directors which is responsible for the administration, maintenance, and management of the Association's By-Laws and Policies.
This by-law amendment will be voted on at the AGM.
We will have vacancies on the board for next season that will be called for election. We have some positions that fall under By-Law 6.6. As per 6.6., ‘any vacancy on the Board that arises between elections will be filled by appointment by the Board until the next Annual General Meeting. All vacancy appointments shall be approved by the Board of Directors via majority vote.’
The two positions that fall under this are:
1. VP Finance - held by Kelly Peck
2. Director of Membership Growth - held by Angela Lewis.
These positions have been Board elected and we must carry them forward to the membership for election to the end of term as per the by-law.
Two other positions will be vacated and require new applicants:
1. Director of Administration
2. Director of Membership Experience
Please find the role descriptions below:
If anyone is interested in submitting for either of these positions or have further questions about them, please contact Tim Sheppard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you at the AGM!
