Scott Moldenhauer Commits to Western Michigan Broncos
Congratulations to former Junior Hurricanes defenseman Scott Moldenhauer on his commitment to the Western Michigan Broncos NCAA Division I hockey program. Scott will be a freshman with the Broncos this fall.
Scott played the past two seasons with the Cedar Rapids Rough Riders of the USHL.
Over the past few months the RYHA Board has been reviewing its bylaws and structure. With the guidance of legal counsel, the Board has developed a revised set of bylaws and recommended changes in the board structure. The revisions are intended to provide bylaws that are more consistent with other not-for-profit organizations in North Carolina and to address some key protections for the organization and board that are not present in the current bylaws.
As a member driven organization, these new bylaws require a formal vote of the RYHA membership. The new bylaws also implement changes in the board structure that, if approved, will require an out of cycle election of two board positions.
The full revised bylaws, a summary of bylaw changes, and a Board of Directors FAQ document have been posted to the Junior Hurricanes website. Click here to review these documents.
A membership meeting has been scheduled for Friday September 5, 2014 from 6:30-8:00p at the PNC Arena. Members are encouraged to attend in person, but we also intend to provide access to the meeting via online and phone conferencing. Dial-in/Login information will be provided prior to the meeting.
The official votes for the bylaws and open board positions will be taken online following the meeting. All voting will close 24 hours after the conclusion of the meeting.
Nominations for the two open board positions is now open. The open positions will fill the offices of Secretary and VP at Large. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming part of the Junior Hurricanes/RYHA Board, please submit your nominations by clicking here. The link to the nomination form can also be found under the Program Info tab of the Junior Hurricanes website. Nominations close Monday September 1, 2014.
If you’re interested but not sure about what’s involved, we are holding an informal Q&A session on August 27th from 6:30-7:30p at the Starbucks at 4421 Six Forks Road near North Hills Mall. Three current board members will be available to answer your questions about what’s involved in being an RYHA Board member.
If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to any of the current board members or staff. Our contact information is available on the Junior Hurricanes website.
