*With the changes to the BC Societies Act, nominations from the floor will no longer be able to be accepted.
The following is the structure of the Board of Directors for the 2020/21 Season.
- VP Operations
- VP Administration
- VP Human Resources & Risk Management (formerly Risk Manager)
- Competitive Director (formerly A Director)
- Developmental Director (formerly C Director)
- U7 Division Manager (formerly H1-H2 Manager)
- U9 Division Manager (formerly H3-H4 Manager)
- U11 Division Manager
- U13 Division Manager
- U15 Division Manager
- U18-U21 Division Manager
- Equipment Manager
- Coach Coordinator (2 positions)
- Tournament Coordinator
- Special Events Coordinator
- Referee Assignor (2 positions)
Please note that at the Annual General Meeting, it is the memberships role to vote in the number of Directors needed to complete the 15 Voting Positions. Specific Positions (i.e. Secretary) are not voted on at the AGM. Positions are the responsibility of the new Board at the first Board meeting following the AGM.
This year we have nine (9) positions open on the Board.
Joining the Board of Directors is a rewarding experience. Without these volunteers, LMHA could not have over 1100 players on the ice to play hockey. Every position of the Board is a significant time commitment. If you have questions, we would be happy to answer those for you. At this time of year when we are seeking new Board Members, the question always arises “What positions are open?” Since we do not know until after the AGM how many Directors we will have to fill our total number of positions, this is a hard question to answer. It is discussed at the first Board Meeting and we work to find the best fit for every person. We hope you will consider joining us on the LMHA Board of Directors. Questions can be directed to email@example.com
The following LMHA Members have submitted their nomination to be elected for a position on the Langley Minor Hockey Association Board of Directors:
- Danny Franco
- Tricia Leeb-Anderson
- Natalee Letawsky
- Todd McLaren
- Mike Parkinson
- Maxime Spakowski
- Ted Whitfield
*Please note that candidates are listed in alphabetical order by last name.
