About the Annual Congress
About the Annual Congress and Annual General Meeting
The Annual Congress is held over a weekend in the month of June, and provides BC Hockey members the opportunity to get together to celebrate minor hockey, attend seminars as well as attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on the Saturday afternoon. The AGM of BC Hockey is, as the name suggests, the main annual meeting of the members of BC Hockey.
Our Congress Weekend Goals
This gathering is all about creating a great business, interactive and social environment for BC Hockey members. We gather to learn, take care of Society business, and have some fun. Among our goals:
- Review the completed season
- Discuss and establish direction regarding our rules, regulations, bylaws, policies and budget for the coming seasons
- Elect Directors for the BC Hockey Board of Directors
- Celebrate achievements, champions, and volunteers, including those being awarded for outstanding service
- Provide engaging opportunities for education and training on key areas of focus for the coming season
- Take pride in our accomplishments and enjoy each other's company
We are all invested in BC Hockey as a dynamic organization, melding together Hockey Canada direction with BC Hockey Branch initiatives and with the work of every member association.
It is a weekend to live our values: Fun. Integrity. Teamwork. Excellence.
2023 Annual Congress: June 9-10, 2023
Save the date! BC Hockey’s Annual Congress is approaching quickly and we can't wait to connect with our membership.
The 2023 BC Hockey Annual Congress will take place June 9-10, 2023, at the Penticton Lakeside Resort.
For this year only, the BC Hockey Board of Directors has announced that the registration price for the event will only cost $100 per person. We hope that this price reduction can help reduce the financial burden on Districts and Minor Hockey Associations (MHAs) and allow everyone to come together for a great weekend.
Registration details and a finalized Schedule of Events will be announced soon.
With limited rooms available at the Penticton Lakeside Resort, and a busy weekend expected in Penticton, we encourage all Districts and MHAs book their rooms as soon as possible.
The tentative schedule for BC Hockey’s 2023 Annual Congress will include:
Friday June 9, 2023
Saturday, June 10, 2023
Seminars and Workshops
Annual General Meeting
The theme of this year’s Congress will be Be the Change in Hockey. Some of the key seminars and workshops will cover topics such as Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) and Safe Sport.
On Saturday June 10th, BC Hockey will host the Annual General Meeting (AGM), which will include Board elections with a new slate of candidates. The BC Hockey Membership will also vote on any resolutions to amend the Constitution, Bylaws and Regulations.
The weekend will be capped-off with the 2023 Awards Gala where we get to recognize members and volunteers that have shown dedication to hockey in B.C. and Yukon. Stay tuned for the BC Hockey Award Nominations form.
We can’t wait to see you there.
