Announcement and Call for Volunteers
Submitted By Ken Jamieson on Thursday, June 20, 2013
The GMHA is pleased to announce that it has added a second paid part-time Administrator position to the staff in order to handle some of the day to day responsibilities of the Association and as such reduced the workload required and expected by those who do step up and volunteer for the Association.


The GMHA Board is happy to announce that Tammy Sedore has been selected for this position and as such has resigned as VP of Rep thus creating another vacancy on the Board. Tammy and Katera will take care of all of the day to day operations of the GMHA and provide extended office hours and support for one another if one is away and take the lead role in the major activities previously expected of the Board Members.

If anyone is interested in finding out just what goes on to get almost a 1000 kids on the ice every season please let us know as we have several vacancies on our Board that we need filled in order to provide the best service we can to all of our kids and the best representation to our members.

The two main positions we have are Director positions and they are the VP of Tournaments and as mentioned above now that Tammy is changing positions the VP of Rep  position now needs to be filled as well.  Descriptions from the new Constitution are included below for everyone's ease of reference, but as this is the first year for the Constitution as well as having a second paid part-time Administrator the specifics of the roles will change but they still provide a good overview of some of the things that you might expect to help or give direction on however, you will have very good support and lots of experience to rely on with the staff and fellow Board Members so please don't worry if you don't know all the ins and outs, everyone on the Board started that way at one time and the only way to learn is by doing!

 Tammy's new role is to provide the major support to these two vacant VP positions while Katera will stay focused on working with the Treasurer, VP of HL and VP of Membership as well as the general GMHA duties.

We also need to fill a few more Board positions over and above the two VP positions so please see the list of those after the VP duty descriptions.
