Amalgamation Discussions with Dundas
Submitted By AMHL on Saturday, April 13, 2013
The AMHL is always looking for ways to improve our association and the minor hockey experience for our members. Amalgamation with another centre is an approach many associations have taken to address issues such as declining registration numbers, declining volunteer base and centre classification (A or AA centre).

The AMHL and the DMHA (Dundas Minor Hockey Association) are currently in the very early stages of discussing amalgamation. In the formal Amalgamation Process (see below) provided by the OMHA, we are currently at Step 1 - Individual boards approve to meet to begin discussions.


If the asssociations decide to purse amalgamation after Step 1, it will take at least a year to go through the rest of the process so there will be no change for the upcoming 2013-2014 season.

Ultimately, the decision on whether to amalgamate will be decided by the members of both associations in a vote.


 

Amalgamation Process (OMHA)

Step 1
Individual boards would approve to meet and begin discussions to have an open discussion to amalgamate. 

Step 2
Inform the OMHA of our intent to amalgamate.

Step 3
Begin formal discussion to amalgamate and work out the details of the agreement.

Step 4
Once a general agreement in principle is reached then it must be taken back to each board and approved. 

Step 5
Once approved the general agreement must be presented to the members of both associations in a special AGM (Annual General Meeting) to get their approval through a vote.  



Please note that there will be no changes for the upcoming 2013-2014 season.
