  COVID-19 and the REMHA 2020 Annual General Meeting
May 10th, 2020

Notice to all residents of River East Minor Hockey Association

With the restriction on gatherings we cancelled the in person AGM and referred the matter to legal counsel for direction. Planning of tryouts & budgets are largely completed in June each year & Counsel has reviewed & advises:

  1. Article 12 stipulates the meeting must be held by June 1st.
  2. Article 11 (d) provides the Executive has power over the disposition of all matters arising from all situations not otherwise specifically provided for.

The Articles & By Laws contain no specific direction whether meetings must be in person or to allow nominations off the floor. Articles 11 & 29 applies for voting to be conducted via e-mail as allowed by Hockey Manitoba.

As a result the Association will proceed as follows for the purpose of the 2020 AGM:

  1. Directors Reports will be published on the web site by May 20. Any questions should be directed to the applicable officer.
  2. Election of officers, the positions & length of term are listed on the REMHA web site at www.remha.ca under the Notice dated April 27th.
  3. The sole Constitutional item requiring a vote as part of the AGM is the addition of a Female Hockey V.P. splitting the duties of the A & AA categories. The Notice & rational for this move is noted on the web site & is supported by the Executive.
  4. The Nominating Committee has a full slate of officers with the exception of the position of President & in two cases, V.P. Direct Entry & Development Director has two candidates. We are requesting a short bio from all that we can post by the date for the elections.
  5. Individual adult residents of REMHA wishing to allow their name to stand for a position will need to submit their name to the Secretary by May 24th together with a short bio to be included in the slate of potential officers.

The way forward will look like this:

  1. May 11 – Notice e-mailed to all current membership & executive and also posted on the REMHA web site for area residents that have interest.
  2. Nominations for running for a position must be submitted to the Secretary Cheryl Morrow  by May 24th. The person nominated must indicate their acceptance via email of the nomination to be included.
  3. May25 – Notice requesting a vote on the Constitutional item and a listing of the slate of officers requiring voting by the public will be circulated by email & notice posted on the REMHA web site. Those positions filled by acclamation will also be included. Deadline to submit your vote will be May 31st.

  Notice of Motion for REMHA 2020 Annual General Meeting
April 20th, 2020

Motion #1 – to amend the position & duties for the female hockey program as set out below:

By Law No. 16 Current Wording:

Duties of the Vice President “Female“ Hockey

a) Will be responsible for:

  1. Co-ordinating female hockey within the REMHA area.
  2. Will participate in the selection of coaches for female hockey team(s).
  3. Approval of fund raising for REMHA female hockey team(s).
  4. Co-ordinate registration of North East AA and A teams together with the Lord Selkirk female hockey representative and the River East Registration Director.
b) Will arrange tryouts for REMHA female hockey team(s).
c) Will be representative for the REMHA to Hockey Winnipeg on the female hockey matters.
d) Will exercise a vote as a member of the Executive Committee.

By Law No. 16 Proposed Wording Duties of the Vice President “Female A” Hockey:

a) Will be responsible for:

  1. Co-ordinating female A hockey within the REMHA area.
  2. Will participate in the selection of coaches for female A hockey team(s).
  3. Approval of fund raising for REMHA female A hockey team(s).
  4. Co-ordinate registration of North East A teams together with the Lord Selkirk female A hockey representative and the River East Registration Director.

b) Will arrange tryouts for REMHA female A hockey team(s).
c) Will be representative for REMHA to Hockey Winnipeg on female A hockey matters.
d) Will exercise a vote as a member of the Executive Committee.

By Law No. 17 NEW

Duties of the Vice President Female “AA” Hockey

Same as above in proposed #16 except that AA will replace A in all items in a)b)c)d)e).

Rational

As per By Law #3, female hockey teams represent a partnership between Lord Selkirk Minor Hockey Association and River East Minor Hockey Association under the banner North East Female Hockey and teams are designated “Eagles” at A hockey and “Predators” at AA. To align with LSMHA it is proposed two individuals on the board to represent female hockey. One position would be responsible for all A level programming, Novice – U 17, and the second position would be responsible for the AA programming Peewee, Bantam, and U17.

Rational is based on the following:

  • We are combined with another association and in order for us to continue to develop and grow the program we need more people who have a vested interest in the female hockey program.
  • The community has asked over the years for more development for female players and coaches. We need to have more dedicated time to invest in this as directors of the program and this is not possible for one person.
  • During the tryout process it is extremely important for the Female V.P. to support and help manage the centralized AA tryouts at the U17 level. This is not possible in the current set up as the female VP is dealing with team formation etc. for all the A level teams.
  • The female VP is also responsible for all jersey distribution, emails, coach interviews and team formations. This is not reasonable for a volunteer who is also most likely working full time.
  • Splitting the position would allow us to develop more programming opportunities with Hockey Winnipeg e.g. Novice Timbits, Novice Jamboree.
Submitted by Carrie Schimnowski

Passage will result in the following housekeeping:

  • By Law No. 17 current by laws #17 to #29 are renumbered to be #18 to #30.
  • Article 10 , paragraph 3 will be amended to reflect the two V.P. female positions.
