The OMHA Board of Directors is the consensus based team supporting all of the OMHA’s teams.
Everyone on the OMHA Board is a volunteer and no one is paid. The executive meets on a monthly basis for eleven months of the year. The Annual General meeting is held in April of each year.
OMHA Board Members contribute hours and hours to the Association every week and during certain times of the season (e.g. evaluations) this can approach 40 hours a week.
OMHA Board Members work to objectively carry out their duties to the best of their abilities.
OMHA Board Members seek to deal with all matters in a constructive manner while respecting the dignity of others and making decisions for the good of all members of the Association.
OMHA Board Members are focused on the development of players and committed to see that all players are given the same chance to participate.
OMHA Board Members are devoted to ensuring that winning is kept in the proper perspective; important but secondary to skill development and having fun.
OMHA Board Members are dedicated problem solvers who always appreciate positive solutions to the challenges that present themselves to the Association.
OMHA Board Members encourage and expect parents, coaches, players, officials, and spectators associated with the OMHA to support our objectives in the areas of fairness and equity, and player development.
The OMHA Board is the Association’s link to Hockey Canada via Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO), Hockey Eastern Ontario Minor (HEO Minor) and GHA (Gloucester Hockey Association) including ensuring that all OMHA volunteers are properly certified for the roles that they are providing.
