As you may know, the SPYHA annual membership meeting was held at the end of May. During this meeting, elections were held for the 2017-2018 board. The results were:
Kristi Tennie – mini-mite rep
Paula Austad – mite rep
Carrie Rose – squirt rep
Chris LaRowe – pewee rep
OPEN – bantam rep
Suzanne Doody – midget rep
Jason Ledford – coaches’ rep
Nichole Jesberger – treasurer
OPEN – president-elect
I want to really emphasize the fact that we have no president-elect at this point. This is a huge problem. For this last year, the board has been making do without a secretary. It has been hard at times, and I really hope we haven’t been missing anything, but the board and organization can’t function without a president. Also, according to our by-laws, a president-elect needs to be elected by the membership (meaning another meeting will need to be called). It is not a position that can be appointed by the board like the bantam rep and secretary position can be.
Why do I send this letter? We need your help. We need everyone to really think about how you can help SPYHA be the best hockey association around. We sent more invoices for unfulfilled volunteer hours this year than we ever have in the past. I hear from many people that they just don’t have time, but you do. Imagine all the time it would take to drive your hockey player somewhere else to play hockey if people don’t volunteer to keep SPYHA running.
Please let me know if you have any desire or interest in serving on the board (or anything else for SPYHA). We need a president-elect, bantam rep, and secretary. If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer them.
