Each year, the Eden Prairie Hockey Association holds its annual election to select new members to our Board of Directors. Our 15-member working board is entrusted with the ongoing operation, strategic vision, initiative execution, player development and the overall experience provided to our players.
Each EPHA board member is typically elected to a three-year term. High level expectations of each board member include:
Serving a full 3-year term on the EPHA board will allow for full DIBS forgiveness for your family. Additionally, seated board members cannot participate in the yearly raffle fundraiser.
We are looking for 6 candidates to fill our open board positions starting with the 2021-2022 season. 5 candidates will fill a 3-year term, and 1 candidate will fill a 2-year term.
Traditionally the EPHA holds our annual election in early March. However, due to COVID-19, and the MN Hockey extension of our season to end March 28, 2021 – the current board approved a shift of our annual election timeline.
As such, EPHA Board Elections will be held on WEDNESDAY April 7th, 2021.
(Note: because of the COVID season extension, the timeline stated in our Policies and procedures has been adjusted for this year only to align with the later election date and any potential conflicts with Eden Prairie spring break.)
How do you join the board?
After the candidates have been announced and the election date and time is provided, an association member may request, in writing, an absentee ballot from the Secretary. Any absentee ballots must be returned to the Secretary by 11:59 pm Monday, April 5th.
