June 8 2013
- In an effort to reduce / remove any down-time during seasons due to the
end of BoD / COM terms, the Board of Directors have passed this change:
The Outgoing Board of Directors will now elect the
new COM for the following term. This vote will be held with about 2-3
weeks left in the current term (likely during the playoffs at the end of the
Currently our COM election method results in more league
down-time as there is no COM available in addition to creating the
possibility of an 8th place BoD (the last guy) to get in if the new COM
happened to be a BoD member... There is also the possibility that we
could lose an interested / invested BoD that was forced to hold out to run
for COM but lost.
The new changes will mean:
- There will be no
down-time due to COM elections. The new COM will also facilitate the
new BoD term elections, so the league can carry on with very minimal
- People that ran for the COM position and lost can still run
for the new BoD term.
- Removes the need for the 8th place BoD.
Additionally, if the new Board does not like / agree with the COM that was
voted in by the previous Board, the new Board is absolutely allowed to vote
to remove the new COM and hold new elections (this has not changed... the
Board can always put up a vote to remove a COM).

and Montreal - vacated due to acting as COM) since there were three

Nomination Blurbs from Candidates
Bobby Brodoway - I
believe I would be a great fit for the BoD mainly because of my
activity. I also have a good understanding of the league and it's
standards. I take an interest in other teams and what's going on with
the rules, and any other changes. I haven't been here as long as some,
but I'm as committed as the rest of the league and interested in taking
part in how the league is being run. With any changes the BoD must vote
on, I'd make sure to look at it from either side, for or against, to
make sure it fits into the league, I won't rush my decisions. Vote Bobby
for the BoD spot, and vote for the good guy! :P
Connor Hughes - I think I would be a considerable
candidate because I have been with the TJHL league for five years this
coming June and I have really gotten into it. I'm sure whoever does get
voted into these BoD spots will do a great job so I'm not too worried,
but I want to give back to the league because I feel I haven't
contributed enough over these past five years. I hope to be able to play
my part within the TJHL community and help to make the league even
better than it already is.
McLaughlin - Over the course of the two and a half years I've
been around, I've commissioned three Leagues (most recently TJHL) and
managed four teams. I'm highly active on forums, with a relatively
deep knowledge base of UHS in general, though there is always something
new to learn. I have a deep affection for babies and small
animals, and should you vote for me, I'll lower taxes and bring world
