2023 Call for Board of Directors Nominations

Dear RJMHA Members,

Thank you to all our athletes, members, volunteers, coaches, staff and the Board of Directors for your support during this very difficult year.  Youth sport is not possible without the compassion, dedication and kindness of our hockey community and during another challenging year, it has been great to see what the Jets Team accomplished.  Well done everybody and we look forward to a great season in 2023-24.

Now that the season has come to an end, we are preparing and very much looking forward to next year.  Our hope is that we will be getting back to normal operations, and it is important that we have a dedicated team of directors to serve the association members.  We have shown that the Jets have many dedicated volunteers with expertise in numerous disciplines and we are asking that you think about who has the experience and would be best to represent the members of the Richmond Jets MHA.

This letter serves as a call for anyone interested in putting their name forward for election to the Board of Directors as per the RJMHA Bylaws.  As per our Bylaws, nominations for Director positions will also be accepted from the floor at the AGM, but we encourage you to submit a nomination form before the AGM.

With the member approval of our new Bylaws at the 2021 AGM, it enables our organization to hold a virtual AGM again this year.

Elections will begin to take place at the RJMHA Annual General Meeting to be held on Thursday June 1st, 2023 virtually at 7 pm with registration and participation details to follow.

Candidates for a Director position must possess the following qualifications:

  • Be a member in good standing of the Association for the previous 365 days prior to the Annual General Meeting,
  • Possess an ability to work in a team environment,
  • Be able to give enough personal time to commit to the demands of the position,
  • Be at ease offering input during group discussions and comfortable dealing with conflict.
  • All potential candidates will be required to complete a Criminal Records Check (CRC) prior to being confirmed as a director.

Please submit the nominations to the Chair of the Nominating Committee President Eric Bernal, no later than May 19th, 2023.

A notice of the slate of candidates shall be posted on the RJMHA website prior to the AGM.  Nominations must be submitted in advance of the election, in accordance with such deadlines as may be established by the Board.  Nominations will not be permitted from the floor at a General Meeting.
