Director of Development- Margaret Powell   

  Player Development

·        PSMHA was able to offer two rounds of skills developments thanks to direct sponsorship from Green Lane. Two on-ice instructors and coaches participated with groups for 12-20 kids.

o   Round 1 : 10 sessions – M&Ws - $11865 – U9, U11, U13, U15

o   Round 2 : 4 Sessions - M&W - $3300, U9, U11, U13

·        Smaller groups made for better drills and better opportunity for feedback to players

·        $400 training budget offered to goalies.

      Only 1 goalie that took advantage of the skills.  There were a couple that inquired but they were going to take it over the holidays when we were on lockdown.                                                                                 


Director of Sponsorship- Rick Lalonde – Nothing to report

Director of I/P- Joe Hentz  - Nothing to report


Treasurer - Jean Devine    

Some notes below that have been brought to my attention:


·         As we are now incorporated, we are to have a Review Engagement of our financials.  This will have a minimum cost associated of $2000

o   Unless some knows a Licensed Public Accountant that might do it for less

·         We may be able to get away with a Notice to Reader which has less assurance than a Review Engagement

o   My understanding is this is because the law requiring the Review Engagement vs Notice to Reader is not yet in place

o   A tax return is required as well

o   Estimated cost is between $1000-$1200, unless Kelly is able to help in which case it would about $300

·         There may also be an additional cost as we have to file a couple of tax returns given the incorporation date is Sept 17, 2019

·         As we haven’t decided on the year end yet, we may want to consider changing it

o   The year end financials are presented at the AGM but if we continue to hold the AGM in April and year end is in April, there will be insufficient time for the preparation of the documents. It might be ideal to choose a March year end if the intent is to maintain April AGMs.
