There will be a MAHA General Membership Re-Vote Meeting
On Tuesday, May 30th at 7:00pm in the Highgate School Library
The re-vote is a decision made by the MAHA grievance committee based on a grievance that was filed against the MAHA board.
Please see the following decision from the grievance committee.
"The decision in regards to Failure to Follow Robert’s Rules of Order established proxy voting procedure at the last general election members meeting has been upheld. The MAHA board presented minutes from previous meetings where proxy voting was used, the most recent meeting minutes were dated April 7, 2016 which is before the revision of the MAHA by-laws dated August 10, 2016 in which Roberts Rule of Order was adopted. Although proxy voting has been accepted in the past it is in violation of the current by-laws. The grievance committee decided that a re-vote should take place for all board positions whose terms were up at the end of this year with the exception of nominees who were elected unopposed. Unopposed positions will not be up for re-vote. No proxy voting will be allowed as it is a deviation from the by-laws at the date of the first vote. Any member not in good standing during the original general membership election will not be allowed to participate in the re-vote and may not be allowed to accept any nominations."
The grievance committee also stated that "no new nominations will be accepted."
The following positions will need to be re-voted on:
All MAHA members are encouraged to attend.
The MAHA and SASA coaches played in a Coaches vs Coaches game as a joint fundraiser on Friday evening at the Highgate Sports Arena. It was a great game and a big crowd cheering on their favorite coach(es).
The MAHA board is asking our MAHA families to send a
Speedy Recovery/Get Well card to Jillian Mathieu.
Jilli played on our Squirt B team this past season and loves the game of hockey and is currently playing lacrosse.
For those of you who don’t know, Jilli will be leaving for Dartmouth on May 22nd where she will undergo two brain surgeries. These surgeries are follow up surgeries from her brain tumor removal a couple years ago. Her pediatric neurosurgeon and her team of doctors are very confident that following these surgeries, Jilli could be seizure free for the rest of her life. The hope is to have her back home by June 4th.
Please keep Jilli in your thoughts over the next couple of weeks.
Jilli will also be turning 10 on May 31st while she is in the hospital so we could also send her birthday cards.
The MAHA board thought we could “shower” her with cards from her MAHA family.
Please send your cards to the following address:
1 Medical Center Drive
Lebanon NH 03756
Attn: Jillian Mathieu Pediatric ICU
You can also send her well wishes via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
MAHA President P.O. Box 77 Highgate Center, VT 05459
