Overview and Monthly Meetings
The MHA Board is designated as a “working” Board and all members are expected to be leaders in the MHA youth hockey program. Board Members are elected by a majority vote of the General Membership in attendance at the Spring General Membership Meeting. Positions are held for 3 years. Any positions appointed by the Board during the regular season due to resignation, etc, are only for the duration of that season and will be open at the next Spring General Membership Meeting.
Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. Issues, questions, or concerns can be brought to the Board for discussion. Submitting topics to the MHA Secretary prior to meeting is preferred. For complete information, please refer to the MHA By-Laws in the MHA Handbook found under 'Rules'. That is also where Board Member descriptions can be found.
Individual Board Members can be contacted using the addresses below. If you prefer to contact all Board Members, please send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
