Notice of Annual General Meeting
The MMHA Annual General Meeting will be held on Monday May 8th at 7 pm at the Astrolabe Arena, Cobden.

This year's AGM will include executive reports, the election of the 2023-2024 Executive, and the updating of the MMHA Constitution. 



This document has not been updated in several years, and several changes have been recommended by the current Executive in order to modernize and ensure processes work within District 5 and as a member of HEO.  In order to update this document, a motion needs to be made and passed for each change.

The proposed changes are highlighted and comments added:



The following positions are open for election or re-election:

President (1 year of term is remaining.  Position elected in even calendar years for 2-year term.  The President must have previously served a minimum of one year in a MMHA Executive position.)

Vice President (2-year term - This position was vacant this past season)

Competitive Convenor (1-year of term is remaining - This position was vacant this past season)

Secretary (2-year term)

Risk Management Coordinator (1-year of term is remaining.  Position elected in even calendar years for 2-year term.)

Equipment Manager (2-year term)

U7 Coordinator (2-year term)

Tournament Coordinator (2-year term.  This position was vacant this past season, and other Executive members took on additional duties to ensure our home tournaments ran.  This position must be filled in order for tournaments to run next season.)

Nominations may be made and seconded in-person, during the AGM.  

Each person nominated must be in attendance and will then be asked if they accept the nomination to let their name stand.

Voting by secret ballot will then take place for each position with more than one nominee.

Please attend this year's AGM and support your child's minor hockey association by voting in our election, and/or accepting a nomination for a role on our Executive!  You are welcome to decline a nomination - no pressure!  However, we need parents/guardians present at the meeting to vote for others, and so we can pass motions to update our Constitution.  

Thank you!
MMHA Executive
