Member Meeting - Monday, March 11th 2019

Monday, March 11th, 2019, the KYHC board will hold our Annual Member’s meeting. I hope that all members will come out Ice Valley at 6:30 PM to join us.

Per the KYHC Bylaws, this year there are 4 board positions up for renewal. 1) President of the Board, 2) Irish Chair, 3) KYHC Treasure, 4) KYHC Rules and Ethics Chair. During the regular monthly held February 18th, 2019 letters of interest were submitted for these openings and certified by the Board.


President of the Board:  Bryan Countryman

Irish Chair: Erica Barton

KYHC Treasurer:  Dave Verkler

KYHC Rules and Ethics Chair: Jeff Burke

At this time, all candidates are unopposed for their positions. There will be opportunity for member comment prior to Board certification.

The Board has proposed that the KYHC change the Irish team name to Coyotes starting with the 2020-2021 fall season. We understand there is a long great history of Irish Hockey here in Kankakee, but also believe there are many benefits to being one club with one name. We would like to hear from our members on support for this change, and ideas on how best make it.
