      DYHA Seeking Members for Board of Directors

      By Jeremy Forest 01/12/2019, 8:45am EST

      The DYHA Board of Directors is seeking new members to join the Board later this year.   New Board members selection will take place as part of our Annual Meeting in May.  At that time, some of the current members of the Board will be completing their terms.

      DYHA is a non-profit hockey organization managed by a Board of Directors, which made up primarily of parents of current DYHA players.  The Board is responsible for managing all aspects of the organization's operations.  

      Anyone interested in becoming a member of the DYHA Board is encouraged to attend an upcoming meeting to get a better understanding of the Board's role and processes.  Meetings are typically held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month in the main conference room of the Dover Ice Arena.   The date and time of the next scheduled meeting is also posted at 

      For more information or questions about participating on the DYHA Board , please contact Jeremy Forest at
