AMHA Nomination Committee
Submitted By Carrie Reynolds on Thursday, May 21, 2015
The AMHA Board of Directors continually strives to ensure that the programs and rules of operation that are implemented are consistent with the goals and objectives set out in our Mission Statement. To that end, the Board of Directors is committed to ensuring that the leadership that is put in place will continue to build on the goals and objectives to ensure that our members are provided with a quality hockey program, that a safe, fun and positive environment is available for each child and that the best interests of the members of AMHA are always at the forefront of decisions made.

 

In that regard, the AMHA Board of Directors has established a Nomination Committee. The purpose of the Nomination Committee is to ensure that candidates that are seeking election to the Board possess the integrity, leadership and competency required to be effective Board Members.

Over the years, it has been noted that some people elected to the Board have taken no accountability or responsibility for their role and have subsequently caused the Association to lose significant revenue in their program, created issues for our coaches, players and families as well as Board Members. In addition, the Board of Directors was also in a position recently where a Board Member had to be removed for cause. In order to ensure that this does not occur again, as part of the Nomination process, candidates will be required to provide a current Police Check and, once elected to the Board, a Confidentiality Agreement will be required to be signed.

The Nomination Committee will meet with candidates to ensure that they understand the amount of the work involved, the responsibilities involved with the role they are seeking election to and they will be required to validate their suitability for the position. The Committee is not under obligation to put forward the names of all candidates that apply for a position on the Board of Directors.

The Nomination Committee Members for this year are below:
Todd Smith - Past President - Committee Chair
Oonagh Bradshaw - AMHA Treasurer - Committee Member
Jennifer Mugford - AMHA Tournament Director - Committee Member
Derrick Rushton - AMHA Member - Committee Member
Dave Stevens - AMHA Member - Committee Member

We believe that the establishment of this Nomination Committee is a positive step in ensuring that the Board of Directors that is put in place will continue to serve in the best interests of our Membership for many years to come.
