    Hockey Board Member Election

    Hockey Board Member Election

    IGHHA Members:

    The IGHHA Director Nomination and Election process is intended to ensure that all IGHHA members are aware of open board positions, interested members are able to be nominated, and members are informed of eligible candidates. Please reference Appendix D of the IGHHA Handbook on the IGHHA website for complete information.

    The IGHHA Board of Directors works on behalf of the IGHHA membership to ensure the well-being and success of the association as a whole. Please consider sharing your time and leadership skills with IGHHA. This season the terms of two board positions are expiring. Where “incumbent” is indicated, the sitting member whose term is expiring, is planning to run again this cycle:

     Open Board Positions

    ·        Director of Hockey Operations

    ·        Director of Communications/Secretary: Incumbent -Troy Woltman

    Each person elected to the Board will serve a three-year term from May 2021 – April, 2024. Active members of IGHHA, in good standing, are eligible to run for board positions. Board members are required to attend board meetings throughout the year (the 3rd Monday of each month) where recommendations, discussions and decisions are made. In addition, board members are assigned roles and responsibilities that will require time outside of board meetings to execute the board’s agenda for the year.

    Nomination Process and Election Timeline

    ·        Members interested in serving on the board can express their interest via email to the Director of Communications, Troy Woltman (hockeyigh@gmail.com), or any current board member. Nominations, including self-nominations, will also be accepted from the floor during the March meeting (March 15th 7pm Via Zoom). Deadline for nominations is the conclusion of the March meeting, no exceptions.

    ·        If the number of nominees exceeds the number of open Board positions a balloted election will occur during the Annual Meeting of the Members in April. Eligible candidates can submit a 1-page candidate summary to the Director of Communication no later than March 29th, 2021.  A template file will be distributed to eligible candidates following the nomination process. All candidate summaries will be made available to voting members by Sunday, April 18th, 2021.

    ·        The Annual meeting of the Members is scheduled for Sunday, April 25th, 2021 from 5-7pm at VMCC where balloted elections will occur via drive though voting in the parking lot, if required. Election results will be tallied at the end of the meeting and those elected to the board will be announced. Assignments for each elected Board member will be determined by the Board of Directors during the May meeting.

    Responsibilities for each Director position can be found in the IGHHA Handbook.

    Additional questions about open board positions, the nomination process, areas of responsibilities, and general what-to-expect would be best addressed by speaking with any member of the board.

    If you want to make a difference when it comes to IGHHA hockey, our association, our players, and our member families’ youth hockey experience, please get involved!  Volunteers are the backbone of our program. We encourage all members to attend board meetings

    IGHHA Season Update

    Hello IGHHA Members.

    As most of you are aware the Governor has extended his executive order requiring hockey to remain on pause with practices resuming on January 4th.  The Governor has not announced when games will resume, however MN Hockey speculates games will resume no later than January 18th.  We will provide additional information on game and tournament restrictions as that information becomes available.

    Additional COVID restrictions will be in place when we return to the rink on January 4th.  MN Hockey will publish all guidelines next week and IGHHA will ensure this information is distributed to membership.  Here are some of the new/revised restrictions that have already been communicated:

    • Participants must arrive fully dressed (excluding helmet, skates, and gloves) and equipment bags cannot be brought into the rink
    • Exception for goalies who can arrive ½ dressed with remaining gear in an equipment bag
    • Entry/exit of the facility needs to occur within 10 minutes of the scheduled ice time
    • No Locker Room Use
    • VMCC seating plan will be communicated prior to our return to the rink
    • 1 parent will be allowed per participant for the Mite/U8 and younger levels to assist with equipment
    • No dryland training in arenas

    With the continued pause on youth sports, Associations cannot sanction team events until January 4th.  Coaches, Managers, Coordinators, and Board members are not able to schedule any in person team events or gatherings.  Distribution of team apparel and other administrative logistics are allowed as long as they do not require family gatherings.

    MN Hockey has approved a season extension until the end of March.  District, Regional, and State tournaments are planned and will be rescheduled to align with the season extension.  Additional information will be provided as available.

    The City of IGH continues to prepare outdoor rinks with the intent to be up and running the day after Christmas, weather permitting!  Although Associations and Coaches cannot arrange outdoor team activities prior to January 4th, we do encourage families to take advantage of the outdoor ice once available.

    Volunteer commitment and registration fee adjustments are anticipated, however additional information is required to finalize.  More details will be provided once we have a better understanding of all impacts associated with the extended pause.

    Thanks for your continued patience as we await our return to the rink January 4th!  As the holidays approach, please ensure you do your best to follow the MDH guidelines related to social gatherings so we give our participants the best opportunity to make a safe return to the rink on January 4th.

    Happy Holidays!
