I am pleased to say we had our first board meeting and quorum was met. The goal of the first meeting was to introduce the members and set some objectives for the next season which we did. Many of these ideas and goals are around player and goalie development, growing our membership, and increasing our community footprint. It was also around filling the vacant roles.
I am pleased to say we have filled a couple of the vacant spots but there are a few very important ones which we must fill to ensure a successful season. Although we do need people from all age divisions I am really putting a push to bring in some volunteers from the younger divisions. This will ensure ideas are heard from to represent all ages, fresh ideas are brought forth, and most importantly we have the ability to transition to future board members and ensure there is enough experience.
What are we looking for in a volunteer? We are looking for people who understand that this great sport and association did not just appear for all of our kids to join and would like to give back to ensure it is stronger then when we started in it. We need people with new ideas and/or people who can work as a team to help bring an existing idea to fruition.
Positions that are open and must be filled:
I understand and appreciate everyone is busy, however, many hands make light work. Please have a look at the roles we need filled and whether or not you are able to take one on or if you know someone who you feel would be a good fit, please encourage them. If you would like more information please email me and we can discuss further or I can send the full job description to you. We have some great people, and experience, on the board so you will be set up for success and have lots of support behind you.
I would like to thank you for reading this, considering a role, and hopefully looking further into how you can help.
