Call for Volunteers

Members of SMMHA

This is the time of year were SMMHA takes a look at who will be sitting on our executive, coaches committee, chair people and directors for the next season 2016-17. Some have expressed that they are stepping down or their terms have run out. This is where we come to you the members. We are looking for positions in all mentioned above. I will give a brief description to each position needed.

1. Director. This position would be the easiest. You would be asked to attend all the monthly meetings. When decisions need to be voted on, you would be asked to vote. These decisions are for the day to day operation of the Association.  Currently seeking 8 people to fill the director position.

 2. Chair Person. These are positions were you would hold a specific position and over see that particular operation, ie Pictures. You would be the liaison between SMMHA and Adanac. I will list all positions.

  • Shamrock- John Hodkinson
  • Registrar- Dan Rudorfer  (looking for help)
  • Coaches Committee- Mike Morning
  • OMHA- Pete Frehner
  • OMHA clinics Mark Kittmer/Chris Boyd
  • Ice Convenor- Rob Kittmer
  • Lambton Middlesex- Bernie Sterkenburg
  • OWHA- Steve Jarrett
  • WOGHL- Reg Clinton
  • Equipment- Mark McEwan
  • Sponsorship-Janet Edye stepping down  - OPEN
  • Fundraiser/Bond- Paul Williams
  • Skill Development Committee- Dan Murrell/Reg Clinton/Mark Brintnell/Scott Richardson
  • Mite/tyke Committee- Jessica Hodkinson   -  has requested help
  • Tournament Committee- Kristene McCurdy  - has requested help.  This position is very important to SMMHA. The revenue coming in is between $6000-$8000 per year. This is our tenth year and Kristene would like help to make it a special one.
  • NBC Tournament Committee - Brandon Boyd
  • Webmaster - Jeremy Brock
  • Fundraising Committee Mike Morning/Brandon Boyd/Don Corby
  • Wing Night fundraiser event Sheila Coulthard stepping down - OPEN
  • Photos Kelli Scheidel
  • Awards Night Jill Taylor
  • Gate Brandon Boyd

 As you can see some names are doubled up on different positions. We would like to have volunteers to fill the double positions. Also you see some names singular beside Committees. These people need help with these positions. They are a committee. So in saying this, these are the positions we need filled.

3. Coaches Committee    This requires 3 new members. Duty will be to interview all coaches of rep, AE and local league. You will eventually after all coaches have been interviewed vote to decide the coach for each team.

4. Executive. This is made up of Past President, President, 1st Vice, 2nd vice, Treasurer and secretary. The Executive will be asked to run from the directors and voted upon.

So these positions are all volunteer. Without them SMMHA cannot function properly. If you are new to hockey, this is a great way to become involved. I don’t like having to mention this but if some of these positions are not filled it will effect not only the daily running of SMMHA but it may effect registration. No one wants it to go up. Because if we don’t get volunteers than we cut some programs or we pay someone to do it. If you would like to volunteer please email me at[email protected]. Thank you and lets make 2016-17 season a huge success.

Past President
