Announcement from the Executive Director
I am writing to inform you of my intention to not seek renewal of my contract as Executive Director. I am thankful to Chilliwack MHA for drawing me back to a town that meant so much to me during my Junior Hockey years.
As many of you know the Executive Director position was brought in to address a number of gaps within the Association. I have been working with the Board to identify how Chilliwack MHA can better address hockey operations and address the large and often vague job requirements of the various roles required to support such a large association.
I know for many members there was an expectation that this role would offset itself through fundraising lead by the role itself. The role was a great idea, however, had a lot of lofty goals that together we have not been able to achieve. As Chilliwack MHA looks to the coming season I have recommended that they discontinue the current role and spend the upcoming season revisioning a specific role to address the needs of the community and determine a stable funding stream for it.
I am proud of the work that we have been able to accomplish together and while the initial focus was not coaching and development for this role, this is the work that needs to be focused on within Chilliwack MHA.
Thank you so much for 2 excellent years working for your association. I have worked alongside some excellent coaches, volunteers, and players. I will never forget my time at Chilliwack MHA and will continue to be involved as I plan to raise my family in this community and will be continuing my work with the BCHL Chilliwack Chiefs.
Brian Maloney, Executive Director
