BDMS Parent Meeting


As you may know, our program has been operating largely with a small, dedicated group of volunteers. We've tried to keep paid services to the necessary minimum. Volunteer effort helps keep fees affordable.

A good deal of the volunteer effort has been provided by the steering committee, chaired by Vic Tesan. Vic has done a huge amount of work personally. He has now stepped down from the role of chair, and your steering committee is reviewing how to handle the transition.

The steering committee hopes to include more participation from teams in operating the program. Some of the duties that Vic and others have been doing can involve more people. Another benefit would be more involvement by teams in the decisions that are always part of operating a program. The steering committee is comprised of a representative from each District club, plus a rep from the District board. It doesn't necessarily include any coaches or parents from BDMS teams.

Your steering committee wants to explore how we can best operate this program with increased team/parent involvement and good communication. To that end, we have called a parent/volunteer meeting. We ask that at least one parent from each team attend, as well as at least one manager or coach. All managers and coaches, and other parents, are also most welcome. BDMS is not formally a club, but it is a "virtual club", and for the parents and players, it is really your program. We want your engagement!

The meeting will be:

Date: Wednesday, June 21st, 2017
Time: 7:00 pm pm
Location: The Lakeview Room at Bill Copeland Sports Centre 3676 Kensington Avenu e, Burnaby

Andrew Fowler, Chair
