Following the last update from the Steering Group in October 2018, there have been various meetings of not only the group itself but also the Development and Sports Administration Working Groups to consider further detail for the proposals to create a new UK-wide ice hockey organisation as agreed by all stakeholders in the summer.
The Steering Group would like to thank all those involved in the working group meetings for their valuable input towards this important project as follows:
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.
The Steering Group is finalising the proposals so that these can be shared with stakeholders in this first quarter of 2019 as planned. It will present its work to the boards of both IHUK and EIHA on February 27th and the following dates have been arranged to present the proposals to stakeholders and members as part of the consultation:

Sunday, 24th March – Murrayfield Ice Rink, Edinburgh (10.00am – 12noon)
