Draft Meeting Minutes and an Important Change in Policies

05/19/2021, 10:30am EDT
By Walt Milligan

Draft meeting minutes from the District 8 Spring Meeting are now posted under the Meeting Minutes link to the left. 

An important change was approved unanimously to help us comply with SafeSport and Background Check mandates, to keep us out of legal trouble, and to protect our players:

No team roster will be approved until after the association registrar has submitted a completed Board roster for all Board Members. This is a USA Hockey "Team" of Board members created in the USA Hockey registration system.  They will all need to get a current USA Hockey registration number, which is free for volunteers.   All Board members and volunteers who come in contact with players must also complete SafeSport training and undergo a background check. 

These requirements for a Board roster and board/volunteer training are non-negotiable. 

Contact Al Wakeham or Michele LaCourt for help or further information.
