Nelson minor hockey re-elects Tony Maida as president

Maida's second year in the role will also be his 20th year on the board of directors.

Tony Maida will return for another year as president of the Nelson Minor Hockey Association.

Maida was voted back in following the association’s annual general meeting Tuesday evening at Hume Hotel. Eleven positions on the board of directors were filled (see below for the complete list) with six new members joining the association.

Vice president Danny Jewitt asked Maida to return for his 20th year on the board. Jewitt is expected to succeed Maida in the future.

Maida said he hasn’t thought yet about what his mandate will be in his second year as president.

“I’ll wait until the first meeting and see what direction the board wants to go in, what their mandate is, and go from there,” he said.

Some highlights of the AGM include:

• NMHA incurred a net loss of $13,095.88. This was, according to treasurer Brad Ouchi’s report, due in part to the lowering of registration fees from $490 to $300 as part of Maida’s previous mandate to lower overall costs associated with hockey.

• Total registrations increased by 15 players to 165 total participants from last year.

• An joint initiative to share boundaries and cut costs with the Castlegar Minor Hockey may be coming to an end. The agreement, which saw four Nelson rep teams practise in Castlegar once a week, saved NMHA $12,750. However, there is a motion to end the agreement that will be voted on at Castlegar’s AGM on Tuesday.
