Administration - Bulletin Details
ISSUE #:      2016-006
February 12, 2016
TO: BC Hockey Membership
FROM: Chief Executive Officer

COPY:BC Hockey Coordinators
SUBJECT: Operating Budget 2016 - 2017

As per Bylaw 906, please find attached for your information the 2016 – 2017 BC Hockey Operating Budget as approved by the Board of Directors on January 25, 2016.

In addition to the budget document, and in advance of the 2016 BC Hockey Annual General Meeting (AGM), there are a few related items of note to the membership:

  • All adjustments to the BC Hockey Schedule of Fees and Assessments require the approval of our membership at the AGM.

  • At present, the only item included in the 2016 - 2017 budget that requires a resolution for consideration by the membership at the AGM relates to the addition of a $5.00 annual membership assessment to minor hockey recreational teams.

  • Currently, minor hockey recreational teams are the only category that does not pay an annual membership fee.

  • The revenue collected from the proposed minor hockey recreational team fee would be utilized to offset the cost of minor recreational programming.  These programs have operated at a loss over the years and are targeted at recreational players and teams.

  • The 2016 - 2017 budget includes the expansion of minor recreational programming with a focus on:

    • Providing increased opportunities for female athletes.

    • Recruitment of new participants to the game.

  • An additional resolution will be put forward for consideration, though it does not affect the Schedule of Fees and Assessments until the 2017-2018 season.  It sets out a proposal to continue the practice of approval for the annual Membership Fee increase over a three (3) year period starting in the 2017 – 2018 season.

  • The membership directed that a small annual adjustment be enacted beginning in the 2007 – 2008 season in order to avoid larger fee adjustments being necessitated over longer intervals.

  • Since that time an annual fee increase of $0.25 per participant has been approved by the membership.

  • At the 2014 AGM the membership approved a proposal to consider these annual increases in three year cycles in order to eliminate uncertainty during the budget development process (i.e. waiting until the June AGM to approve the fee increase for the upcoming season).

If you have any questions regarding this notice or the attached budget information, please contact the BC Hockey office.
