'A' Game Series - Issue No. 06 – FHBC AGM - Potential Outcomes to VWFHA
- Submitted by

The VWFHA executive would like to remind all members of the upcoming:

FHBC AGM on Monday, February 10th at 6:30pm at Fortius Sport & Health in Burnaby.   

You must be in line by 6:15 for verification of the proxies. It is best to send your proxy forms ahead of time to FHBC for verification as that will greatly speed up Monday night’s proceedings.

Due to the rescheduling of our February 4th Council Meeting, we were unable to discuss this time-sensitive agenda item.

This year's FHBC AGM is of particular note due to more competition for Board positions and more impactful motions than there have been in recent years. We feel it is important that everyone associated with our League understand the ramifications of some of the potential outcomes of this year’s meeting.

Two representatives from the League did attend an information meeting with Hawks and West Van to hear their plans and concerns.  Mark Vaughn (WV) and Andrew Dewsberry (Hawks) did agree that candidates should be considered based on qualifications, not necessarily their perhaps narrow agenda.  FHBC serves the entire province, so please carefully review the biographies of the candidates. 

All members are encouraged to view the attached information:

As one of the biggest groups of Field Hockey BC membership, it is important that we make our voices heard. A subset of the Board nominees, as well as the motions put forth for this year’s AGM represent the Greater Vancouver Junior Field Hockey League's needs, with conversations centered on men and boys field hockey. As a different stakeholder in the community, we may need to question how they will represent us in the future. More 65% of the FHBC membership is female! 

If anyone has any questions regarding the upcoming FHBC AGM, please feel free to reach out to a member of the Executive.
