WNGHA 2018 Notice of Motion Form


It would be an asset to the association to have some new members join the executive, become volunteers for fundraising events, and help to shape the future of the West Northumberland Girls Hockey Association. It is a venue for all members to express their opinion (positive and negative) and to bring new ideas to the table. The WNGHA executive always strives for the best, and the more diverse the input, the better the decisions tend to be. Please consider attending this year's AGM and possibly sitting on next year's executive.
