NDMS UPDATE - COVID 19 Organization Response
Submitted By Jen Stewart on Tuesday, April 14, 2020
To our NDMS Players and Families,

These are unprecedented times and due to the current global pandemic we are having to take unprecedented measures to plan for our next season.  At this time, the 2019-20 executive have approved a motion that will have the current executive stay on and start the planning for our next season of hockey.  

Our OMHA regional member has been of this notified of  this decision.  




Our annual general meeting and the election for our next executive will take place when the government and health authorities have given us the approval to gather in group settings.  They have allowed for all postponed meetings to be scheduled within 90 days of the ban being lifted. Notification of AGM will be posted on our website, Facebook and sent to our membership once a date is determined.

In the mean time, our existing executive will continue to meet using virtual tools to ensure that the organization is ready for next year.
 
 
If you are interested in becoming part of the executive for next year, please reach out to current President Greg Hartwick ([email protected]) or current Vice President Jennifer Barton-Crowley at ([email protected]) to indicate your interest in an executive position for next year.  It would be great to have new volunteers out to support our executive committee.
 
 
Please note that our Annual Meeting, our Awards Day, our Volunteer Appreciation Event and our In-Person Registration Events are all postponed until further notice. 
 
Please watch for information on how to register on-line.
