Board Proposals

The Board of Directors proposes to amend the by-laws dated December 12, 2016 for the following purposes:

  1. To increase the number of directors to five (5). Note the bylaw requirement to have between four (4) and nine (9) directors will remain unchanged.
  2. To amend the officers that are required to to appointed by the Board of Directors. Specifically, the Secretary role will be removed. There will then be two Director positions that will NOT have mandated officer appointments. However, it is proposed that the two positions be filled by individuals who will fulfil the roles of Player Representative (Men’s and Women’s).
