Chilliwack Minor Hockey still seeking nominations

CMHA has soon key roles lacking nominations as the mid-may annual general meeting draws near.

The Chilliwack Minor Hockey Association has received several nominations for open board positions in the lead-up to its May 13 AGM.

But there are still very important positions that must be filled and have yet to see nominations.

CMHA needs to fill vacancies at second vice president (one year term), secretary (one year), treasurer (two year) and divisional director (two year).

“The ability of the CMHA board to function properly with vacancies in these roles will be severely limited,” said CMHA past president David Soltys, a member of the association’s nomination committee. “The hockey programs that CMHA is committed to delivering will suffer and our players will be affected.”

“We urge you to talk to someone on the nominations committee (Soltys or Tonya Waldock) or any of the existing or past board members if you think that you might be able to put your name forward to fill one of these critical roles,” he continued. “We will help you with the nomination process.”

While CMHA by-laws state that nominations need to be put forward 30 days before the elections, in practical terms, it is much more important that these vital roles be filled.

Nominations will be accepted up to the week of the AGM.
