Amalgamation Update
Submitted By sfuerth on Monday, January 23, 2012
To Our Members: This is just an update to keep our memberships informed on the amalgamation discussions that have taken place between EMHA and other centers.

There have been several meetings to date that have taken place with other centres to discuss the possibility of amalgamating the travel systems. These discussions have been very positive and productive. The reasons behind these talks have to do with the changing landscape of hockey in Ontario and what would offer the best solutions to the players, parents and the Association.

To date, there has been no definite decision on an amalgamation, just discussion. As a matter of fact, the only decision that has been made to date is that the Associations involved have decided that for the 2012-2013 season, there will be no change. We will take our time, and proceed in a manner that assures attention to details and fairness for all involved. We remind everybody that an amalgamation can only take place upon an appropriate vote by the membership of the Association, thus authorizing the amalgamation. The vote must be approved by a 2/3 majority for any proposed amalgamation to be proceed.

These are challenging and exciting times for all minor hockey Associations. We will continue to meet and move forward with possible amalgamation discussions. The Board of Directors is committed to openly communicating information that will be forthcoming as a result of these meeting to the members. We ask that all members check the web site on a regular basis for future updates.

Yours In Hockey, EMHA Executive Board
