    CYHA Elections

    Your Board of Directors is pleased to announce that, after much discussion and planning, the Board has prepared the following plan to proceed forward with our Board of Directors Elections which have been unfortunately delayed since March 2020 due to COVID-19.

    Board of Directors Elections will take place in an in-person, 2-stage event as follows:

    • Event 1 will occur in conjunction with Travel Team Tryouts on Saturday, August 8th from 3 – 8P.
    • Event 2 will occur in conjunction with House End-of-Season Playoffs on Friday, August 14th from 5-7:15P.

    Members may cast their ballot(s) at either event. These dates will be the only forum by which to cast your vote.

    As a reminder, voting eligibility is based upon EACH individual for whom an annual membership fee is paid and, is in good standing.  As an example, if you pay membership fees for 1 child, equals one ballot; 2 children, equals two ballots, etc. Furthermore, “good standing” is defined as having no outstanding balances due the Association.  In addition, our bylaws also grant each Active Coach one voting ballot. Members who have a child/children aging out of the Association this upcoming season or, who may be changing Associations this upcoming season are reminded that this is an election under the 2019-20 Season and therefore, you are eligible to cast a vote.

    During each Event, a dedicated table will be setup for members to obtain and sign for receipt of the ballot(s).  A secured Ballot Box, at a separate table, will be available to return your completed ballot which, will be secured inside a sealed envelope provided with your ballot(s). Ballot envelopes will be organized and issued using YOUR PLAYER’S name for single ballots or, by FAMILY last name for multiple ballots. Separate ballot envelopes will be prepared for Coaches. Coaches MUST sign for their own ballot envelopes. Coach ballot envelopes will not be issued to a Coach’s spouse, child nor to another Coach on their behalf. To ensure the integrity of our election process, both Chad Boerst and Robert Engler, who are our CAHA Representatives, have agreed to monitor the voting process.  Once voting closes at 8P on Saturday, August 8th, the Ballot Box will be held by either Chad or Robert then, returned for Event 2 Voting on Friday, August 14th at 5P. Voting will end at 7:15P on Friday, August 14th.  No ballots will be accepted thereafter.  At the conclusion of voting, Chad or Robert will again, maintain possession of the Ballot Box.  These two representatives will then count the ballots and report the voting results back to the BOD as a whole.  The BOD will communicate the election results to the Membership as soon as possible thereafter.

    The following BOD Director Positions are up for Election:  President, Secretary, Registrar and Travel Commissioner. The Secretary Position is currently incumbered by Teena Wyatt, and is unopposed.  Attached for your viewing pleasure, you will find the Bios for all Candidates currently running for the aforementioned Board Positions.
