As a part of BC Hockey’s commitment to work with our membership in the enhancement of their delivery of programs and administration, we recently surveyed our MHA’s for suggestions on how BC Hockey could best enhance local Association operations.  The highest rated item was the delivery of a series of “Professional Development” webinars throughout the season.
