The Ridge Meadows Minor Hockey (RMMHA) executive will be holding two Town Hall meetings to inform members of a new set of bylaws for the association. The first is tonight.

President Dan Herbranson said one of the most visible changes would be shrinking the executive from its present 21 members down to 13.

“We’ll be encouraging more members to volunteer,” he said.

“One of the mandates at the start of this season was to look at our old set of by-laws and bring them more in line with how the society deals on a daily basis,” he added. “At our last Annual General Meeting in April 2013, a number of our members pointed out our by-laws were quite dated and not in line with how we conduct business.”

The first meetings will take place tonight (Feb. 12) at 7 p.m. at the Hammond Community Centre; and the next Feb. 15 at 1 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the Pitt Meadows Arenas complex.  All parents and guardians of minor hockey players are encouraged to attend.
