CHA's AGM Concludes in Toronto, ON
May 28, 2002

The CHA AGM brings together representation from all 13 CHA member branches who make up the CHA Board of Directors, as well as the various councils of the CHA: Female, Minor, Senior, Hockey Development.

A summary of the decisions approved by the CHA Board of Directors during this year's AGM include:

  1. CHA has adopted a new penalty for the 2002-2003 season that will be enforced at all levels of play within hockey in Canada. The penalty will be ‘checking to the head', and it is hoped that the enforcement of this rule will address and lead to the reduction of concussions in hockey at all levels of play within the CHA.

  2. CHA Board of Directors has agreed to a commitment to long range planning for the organization. Plans will be developed over the next 12 months and presented to the Board as to a planning process and direction for the organization long-term.

  3. CHA Board of Directors has approved the continuation of the body checking pilot, a project that is undertaken by the Ontario Hockey Federation (one of the 13 member branches of the CHA). During the 2002-2003 season, any CHA branch has the option to implement body checking within their Branch, for the age groups of Atom and above.

Bid presentations for the hosting of CHA National events were heard by various CHA Councils during this year's AGM. CHA Councils brought forth recommendations to the CHA Board of Directors for approval. The following CHA National events have been approved by the CHA Board of Directors.
