Seaforth Minor Hockey Executive joined by OMHA's President for Board Development Seminar
Submitted By vmillson on Tue 07 31, 12
On June 18th, 2012 the Seaforth Minor Hockey Executive hosted a Board of Director's Development Seminar. OMHA's Bill Hutton (Barrie) provided those in attendance with information and training on board policy and procedure. Not only were the majority of your SMHA minor hockey executive in attendance,all area Minor Hockey Executives were invited to join and we were happy to have some of our neighbours from Mitchell Minor Hockey participate as well. OMHA President Joyce Junker (Tavistock) was also in attendance.

This board development seminar followed a series of monthly board development activities for 2011/12 executive members. In an informative and at times humorous manner, Mr. Hutton reminded executive members that it is the job of minor hockey executive members to develop policy and procedures that temper the needs of individual players and teams with that of the organization as a whole. Hutton also stressed to directors that their primary responsibility is to ensure that the policy and procedures of their own organization and that of their parent organizations are followed. Hutton noted that the majority of minor hockey organizations are having trouble with declining numbers both at the volunteer and player level. Those in attendance were encouraged to spend more time on long range planning activities and less time bogged down with the day to day functioning of the organization.

While there is always work to be done and lots to learn, SMHA executive members came away confident that as a board of directors we are on the right track and as an organization Seaforth Minor Hockey is in fairly good shape.

SMHA still has a number of positions available on the board. If you would like to be part of a dynamic team, are looking for a rewarding experience and the opportunity to learn more about minor hockey consider serving your organization as a director.

Anyone interested in further information about becoming a director please contact our secretary/treasurer [email protected] and/or attend a regularly scheduled board meeting. If you know a member of the community who might be interested please pass the information along to them as well as it is not a requirement to be a parent to be a member of the Execuitve. All regularly scheduled board meetings are open to the public. The executive generally meets at the Seaforth arena the first Monday of the month at 7pm.

SMHA Past President
