EGMHA 2021 Annual General Meeting
Submitted By EGMHA Webmaster (JM) on Tuesday, June 1, 2021
Thanks to everyone who participated in our virtual AGM on Wed May 26th.

Special thanks to the Town of East Gwillimbury and Bates CPA for joining our AGM, and shared important information regarding future plans and capital upgrades for the sports complex, return to ice programming and our 2020 Audit results.

As part of the AGM, we said goodbye to two longstanding executive members, we extend our gratitude to Doug Yarenko and Ryan Gray for all the years they have put in as our VPs Local League and House League.

EGMHA is pleased to announce the 2021-22 Executive Members:

President: Rick McGlone
Director of Operations: Ed Vetere
Secretary: Jen Mackey
Treasurer: Kristin Ballentine
Director of Player & Coach Development: Doug Westlund
Director of Rep: Jeff Mackey
Deputy Director of Rep: James Suderman
Director of Local League: Sherri Annis
Director of House League: *VACANT*
Director of Sponsorship and Fundraising: Michael Mendes
Director of Equipment and Apparel: Heather Scott 

Director of Events: Andrea Dingman (NEW)

Director of Communications: *VACANT*

Please note that there are two VACANT positions. We are in need to fill both, but the VP House League position is urgent and critical to ensure we are able to offer a successful house league program. EGMHA runs on volunteers and the lack of volunteers in key positions makes it very difficult to ensure a quality experience on the ice for our players. If you are interested in stepping up to volunteer, the current Executive team will ensure you are supported throughout the season. Please consider volunteering your time, and speak to any of the individuals listed above to learn more about what the positions involve.  


In addition to the vacant positions listed above, we would like to remind members that Director of Player and Coach Development, Doug Westlund is also actively recruiting for a Deputy to learn about the role and assist him the upcoming season. This is a great opportunity to join the team in a non-voting supporting role and make a impact in the future development of our players and coaches. 


As part of the AGM, the membership also approved a number of constitution and bylaw changes. The updated document will be available on our website later this week.

 

Congratulations to former Past President Eric Kopsala on his new role with EGMHA as President Emeritus. This position was appointed at the AGM by the membership under New Business. We are thankful to have Eric’s experience to continue to help us when needed.

 

To our members, we just want to remind you to keep checking back on our website for more information on our upcoming season as we continue to finalize plans, in the coming weeks it will have a new fresh look.

Thank you again to all the members who joined in the 2021 AGM, we are all looking forward to getting back on the ice in September. We wish all our membership a safe summer.
