WKMHA Steering Committee Request for Volunteers
August 12, 2016
The WKMHA Executive is committed to making WKMHA the best association it can be. We have now had the steering committee in place for a full season with excellent round table discussions and initiatives the executive has adopted.
Due to a couple committee members recently deciding to step aside due to taking on other responsibilities within wkmha, we are reaching out to the membership to fill these vacancies on the Hockey Steering Committee. The levels required are Bantam Recreation and Atom (Dev or Rec).
If you would like to be considered for a position on the Hockey Steering Committee, please forward an email by August 25t, 2016 to WKMHASteering@shaw.ca with your name, your child(rens) level(s) and a brief overview of your credentials and what your interest in being on the committee is. The appointments are for the remainder of the one (1) year term (08/01 – 07/30) with consideration of extending for a 2nd year. After reviewing the applicants, the Steering Committee Chair will make recommendations to the WKMHA Executive who will then make the final decision on the appointments. The Committee Chair will then contact the successful candidates on or about Sept 15th, 2016.
Please note that the Steering Committee will strive to meet the 3rd week of every month. Meetings are held during the evening and at the WK Board office when available.
