CALGARY, AB - The Canadian Hockey Association will hold it's Annual General Meeting in Edmonton, Alberta at the Sheraton Hotel from Thursday, May 18th through Tuesday, May 23rd.

The AGM brings together the Board of Directors, representatives from the CHA's thirteen branches and the CHA's development councils (Female, Junior, Minor, Senior, COE Research and Development) to discuss issues relating to hockey in Canada.

Among the subjects on the 2000 AGM's agenda are:

  • A "Millenium Session" on the CHA's initiatives in response to the Molson Open Ice Summit recommendations

  • A National Coach Mentorship Program for the 2000-2001 season

  • A proposal to scale the Full-time National Men's Team Program down to a Part-time Program

  • A proposal to limit USA Hockey imports playing junior hockey in Canada

  • A proposal by the Ottawa District Hockey Association for an age change in the various amateur hockey divisions. Currently, the midget level brings together 16 and 17 year olds, the bantam 14 and 15 year

  • olds and so on, with two age groups within each level. The motion proposes having the midget level bring together 15, 16 and 17 year olds, the bantam level 13 and 14 year olds, the peewee level 11 and 12 year

  • olds, the atom level 9 and 10 year olds, the novice level 7 and 8 year olds and the initiation level for 6 year olds and under.

"The AGM is a culmination of another tremendous year of hockey in Canada, a year that saw thousands of volunteers get involved and thousands of kids play hockey at various levels," said Wayne Russell, Chair of the board of the CHA. "There are key issues on this year's agenda and the decisions we will make will help enhance the game of hockey in Canada in the new millenium."

The CHA will also present several awards on Monday, May 22nd: the Gordon Juckes Award, for outstanding contribution to hockey, the Volunteer of the Year award, the Female Breakthrough Award and the Order of Merit awards.

"We're looking forward to hosting close to 300 delegates coming from all parts of Canada," Orest Korbutt, Chairman of the host committee. "The topics for discussion will be extremely interesting, and it will be a tremendous weekend."
