What does it mean to serve on the Board?

To serve as a member on the Board of Directors, you must:

  • be a direct reflection of the SHAHA brand to the public and be recognized as a leader within the organization
  • actively participate in all scheduled Board meetings; deliver updates on your assigned tasks
  • provide planning and on-site assistance for committees and other organizational events, including but not limited to:
    • tryouts
    • playoff games hosted by SHAHA
    • organizational fundraisers like the Cash Bash
  • independently perform all duties required by your function or as assigned by the board
  • make organizational decisions that benefit the good of the entire organization and not act solely in the interest of your own son/daughter
  • be able to work with all members of the organization and other board members in a professional manner
  • act as a point of contact should any member have a comment or question, and involve other appropriate parties as needed
  • protect sensitive information obtained from the membership including personal information, player evaluation data and discipline/SafeSport matters
  • understand that although you may receive a tuition credit for your service, serving on the Board is not a financial benefit.  The amount of effort put into your position will easily calculate out to working far below minimum wage

Other requirements per SHAHA's bylaws:

  • The President must be filled or elected by a person with previous SHAHA board experience
  • The other 5 Executive Board positions should be filled or elected from persons with previous board experience whenever possible.
