AGM Sees New Faces Step Up

The Merritt Centennials hosted their Annual General Meeting last night, officially capping off the 2018-19 season.

President Neil Menard, Governor and Director of Hockey Operations Brian Barrett, Business Operations Manager Jared Thomas, Treasurer Beth Nadeau, Billet Coordinator Jessica Culbertson, Booster Club President Betty Doberstein, and through Brian Barrett, Head Coach and GM Barry Wolff, all made reports on the season that was to a solid turnout of Cents fans in the mezzanine at the Nicola Valley Memorial Arena.

After the reports, the board elected to cap the number of directors at 14 moving forward, and called for nominations from the floor. Six names were put forward, but since only two former board members did not let their name stand it meant only 3 new members could join the board. Long time volunteer in the score booth, Richard Stirling, was named one of the new directors. Lisa Cavaliere, a billet of 13 years got solid support from the floor, and Kevin Rabbitt, a former Centennials defenseman, scout in the league, and local business owner got the final seat at the table.

Following the general meeting, the board elected its officers for the coming year. Neil Menard will remain as President, Kevin Rabbitt will serve as Vice-President, Beth Nadeau will remain as Treasurer, and Lisa Cavaliere will assume the role of Secretary.

The Centennials would like to thank Dave MacCauley and Caryl Moffat for their years of service on the board, and look forward to getting to work with the new faces on the board for the coming year.

The Centennials next AGM will be in June of 2020.
