AAAHA Board of Directors

The AAAHA Board of Directors comprises up to 12 volunteer members who are responsible for managing the affairs of the Association in compliance with MAHA and USA Hockey guidelines. These volunteers make a major commitment of time and energy, working as a team to provide a sound program for youth hockey players. Directors are elected for three year terms by the voting membership present at an annual meeting held in March. Board members whose terms expire may run for reelection. Terms are staggered so there is a continuing core of Directors each year. Persons interested in being considered for election to the Board submit a resume indicating their interests, skills and qualifications to the Executive Director. The election procedure is delineated in the By-laws of the organization which are posted on AAAHA's website and on file with MAHA.
 
The Executive Committee is elected by the Board of Directors from its membership at an organizational meeting in April of each year. The Executive Committee is comprised of the President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary and Executive Director. These officers are responsible for making decisions necessary for the functioning of the organization between Board meetings.
