League Policies & Rules

NCWHL Board of Directors

Any reference to the "Board" shall mean the League President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Division Coordinators. The Board is elected prior to the summer season by a majority vote of NCWHL members in attendance at the general membership meeting. Board members must be at least 18 years of age to hold office. The Board has the authority to set league fee structure and approve payment of invoices associated with the rinks, scorekeepers, USA Hockey registration, uniforms, officials, and other league sanctioned expenses. The Board may authorize advance payment for merchandise for the NCWHL to sell, as well as local tournament ice rental reservations.

Changes to league policies hereby stated in this book, and those that are otherwise implied, require a review period for general membership so that comments can be provided to the Board. The Board, within the best of their abilities, will review issues and comments within 7 days. At the end of the review period, the Board may decide to hold a general membership meeting and approve the changes based on the comments received. The Board has the final authority to make changes and amendments to all policies in an effort to keep the league running efficiently.

The Board may be contacted by anyone in the league with constructive suggestions and criticisms. Every effort is made to accommodate all issues, and all issues are dealt with in a timely fashion.

The success of the NCWHL depends on its many volunteers. Opportunities to volunteer are communicated to the league via email as they become available and are discussed at each Annual Meeting.
