As we eagerly anticipate the future of our organization, we are thrilled to announce the upcoming elections for the BHB Board of Directors and Hockey Committee, which will be conducted electronically for your convenience and accessibility. 

We will send all registered members an email on May 20th with a one-time link to vote. The link will ONLY be active starting at 7:30pm on May 20th and will close at 7:30pm on May 21st. Each voting link provided in the email is intended for a single use only. Once you have cast your vote, the link will expire, safeguarding the integrity of the election process.

According to the newly approved BHB's Bylaws that were approved at the Board Meeting on Tuesday, April 23rd, 2024, BHB seeks nominations for the following positions:

Board of Directors

  • Secretary
  • Member At-Large Disciplinary Chairperson

The Board of Directors’ focus is to provide oversight into the business side of the Club and to the Executive Director.  The BOD members should have a strong desire to assist with the business decisions and engage in matters related to the operations of the Club.  The BOD members make decisions as to what is best for the business of Bismarck Hockey Boosters.  

Hockey Committee

  • Secretary
  • Vice-Chair

These positions on the Hockey Committee should be held by members who have a vast hockey background and knowledge about developing youth hockey players who want to assist the Hockey Director in continuing to grow and improve the hockey program across all levels.  The members of the Hockey Committee shall hold discussions related to all on-ice and off-ice hockey matters and shall be the point of contact for all hockey-related questions and concerns from members.  Monthly meetings are required.  The Hockey Committee members are not BOD members, except the Chairperson of the Committee.

More information on these positions is available below as well as in the BHB Bylaws on the website at

To express your interest in running for a position, please email no later than May 15th, stating your intent to run and providing a brief biography that outlines your background and how you believe you can contribute to the future success of BHB.

The next BHB Board Meeting will be held on May 21st at 5:30 pm at The Pier Bar & Grill.  This is a general membership meeting as well and we encourage our membership to come to the meeting to hear more about what occurred this season and what we will be working on in the off-season, along with hearing from Board and/or Hockey Committee candidates. This is your time to help shape the future of BHB!
