The AGM is your opportunity to hear what the Board of Directors has been doing on your behalf. It is your opportunity to ask questions and to provide ideas and feedback. It is also your opportunity to vote for individuals you think will do the best job for you and for the club.
There are no proposed changes to the By-Laws for 2021.
This year, some Director positions are up for one-year elections to fill their normal terms. This is a great introduction to the Board. These positions are (descriptions are below):
The following Directors are up for their normal election of two-year terms (descriptions are below):
My name is Joshua Watson and I have been nominated for the role of Vice President of our club. Here is a little bit about me that you may not already know:
I am running because I feel that it is important for athletes to take an interest in the way their club is managed. The more athlete voices are heard, the better the club will be for our athletes.
My name is Stephanie Visentin and I am running for the position of Vice President. Our family has been involved for a number of years with the club. Both of my children play Para ice hockey for the club. My husband Mike is the head coach of the Junior team. I am also the manager of that team.
I was first elected to the Board in 2018 in the position of Secretary. In 2019 I ran for and was successful in being voted into the position of Director of Fundraising, where I fostered relationships with JumpStart, the CPC, the City of Mississauga, the City of Brampton and others. I have written many grants which the club has benefitted from, with others still outstanding. If elected to the position, I will continue to work with the new Director of Fundraising, teaching them the art of writing grants, as well as helping them explore new revenue streams for the club. I will also continue with my connections to some of our current sponsors that regularly donate to the Gala, the Golf Tournament as well as the Cruiser Cup.
I believe that I can bring a lot to the position, and am excited at the opportunities it will bring me.
Thank you for considering my nomination.
