The Steering Group met with members of the EIHA and IHUK boards to discuss its contents and is pleased to confirm that they have endorsed the report.

There will be a short presentation by the Steering Group of the report’s key points followed by an open floor session to allow questions and comments from those attending.

The group recommends the contents of its report as an important step forward for the whole of ice hockey in the UK and believes it will significantly improve the governance of the sport in the future for the benefit of all those involved.

The group wish to thank all the following members of the Working Groups for their valuable consideration and input on the transition to a new organisation in the areas of Development and Sports Administration:

Development Working Group: David Hand, Richard Grieveson, Geoff Hemmerman, Richard Carpenter, Tony Wood, Richard Gray, Michael Evans and Tony Hand.

Sports Administration Working Group: Andrew Miller, Jim Taylor, Jon Patterson, Andy French, Paul Hayes, Charles Dacres, Gary Dent and Liz Moralee.

Following feedback for the forthcoming meetings, the aim is to get final approval of the proposals by the boards of both EIHA and IHUK and then to call the necessary EGMs to enable members to agree to the move to the new UK organisation ahead of the 2019/20 season.
