Attention! Interlake AGM

The Interlake Ringette Association (IRA) will be holding its AGM on Monday, May 14th at 7:00 PM at the Little Britain Community Hall.  The hall is located at 571 Little Britain Road in Lockport.

 

This meeting is a great opportunity to meet your current and future board members and find out what we were up to last season. Hear about our exciting initiatives for the upcoming season and learn more about what the IRA does and how their decisions impact you directly.  We also would welcome any suggestions around enhancing our program or even introducing something completely new. We do have a number of positions open for election, and we would be excited if you decided to join our Board.   The time commitment is not overwhelming and this gives you an opportunity to have a say in how Ringette is run in the Interlake.  We have a very diverse board both in background and ages and would welcome new members and their ideas.

Positions up for election, including candidates in brackets, are:

 

  • Vice-President
  • Coaching
  • WRL Representative (Jamie Fissel)
  • Treasurer (Chrissy Erickson)
  • Referee-in-Chief (Amy Saluk)
  • Ringette 4U Representative
  • Secretary -1 year term 

We also have two Members-at-Large positions for new members that may want to "test the waters" without having to take on a portfolio.  You can put your name forward for one of these two positions.  These positions are voted on by the IRA board and not at the AGM.

Please note that any Constitution changes need to be submitted by April 23 (3 weeks prior the AGM).   A copy of the current constitution can be found on the website under "Forms".

If you are interested in any of these positions or would like more information on exactly what the IRA does....feel free to contact Genevieve Gifford, IRA president at 204-232-4227 or ggifford@shaw.ca.
