It is with regret that we have to announce that Janice Courtney (Walker) has resigned from our executive to take up opportunities overseas. Janice has been immense in her efforts to further the interests of SA Masters hockey during her time on the executive. Her contribution to the success of the WC 2018 project and the Masters IPT cannot be overstated. We will miss her and her passion, energy and commitment. We wish her and Ryan all of the best in this new adventure!!
I have asked Liz Bailey to step into Janice’s role as Masters IPT Liaison and she has agreed take over that portfolio. With all the projects that SAMHA is embarking on for 2019/2020, we have to broaden the leadership base and it gives us great pleasure to announce that the following people have accepted our invitations to join the SAMHA Executive:
- Pieter Scholtz (SG) – Treasurer
- Debbi Gates (WP) – Projects
- Clarence Hardnick (KZN Coastals) – Projects
- Elaine Harvey (WP) – Projects
They join our existing Executive members:
- Liz Bailey (SC) – Tournaments
- Sharon Barnard (MP) – Secretary
- Neil Midgley – Projects
We are also very excited by new appointments within the broadened leadership group, being:
- WC 2020 Bid Process – Gary Davies & Marc Stenri.
- November Series Project – Andy Merrington.
I am very excited by the new talent that has joined the leadership group and I am sure that they will take SA Masters Hockey to new heights. Thank you to all who regularly sacrifice personal time for the love of the game.
Please watch this space as we will be inviting people to put up their hands to join the leadership team to advance our strategic priorities.
For the love of the game.
