Life Members

Life Member is the highest and most prestigious honour that may be bestowed by Hockey Alberta. The Board of Directors will exercise the highest standard when considering individuals for Life Member status. A candidate for Life Member will have enhanced the recognition of Hockey Alberta at the National or International level, and/or made an outstanding contribution to the development of hockey in Alberta.

The Board may appoint active and posthumous Life Members. The number of active Life Members is limited to 10. Life Members will act in an advisory capacity to the Board, in accordance with the Bylaws and Regulations, but may not vote on any matter.

A committee consisting of at least two (2) Board Members and one (1) Life Member will review potential candidates for Life Membership annually. The Committee:

  • May invite Members to nominate individuals who also meet the criteria for Life Membership;
  • Will review all candidates as per policy, considering the maximum number of Life Members allowed and will consult with the active Life Members prior to confirming nominations to be presented to the Board;
  • Will propose candidates for Life Membership to the Board by the end of May each year.
