Bylaws and Policies

The Barrie Women's Hockey Association is governed by two important documents:


The BWHA's Bylaws define the structure of the association and the rights and responsibilities of members. The Bylaws belong to the Association members, and can only be changed through a defined process including a majority vote at a meeting of the members (such as the Annual General Meeting). The Bylaw's define, among other things:

  • membership and elections for the Board of Directors
  • requirements for the Annual General Meeting, and other meetings of the members
  • requirements for amending, adding, or deleting Bylaws
  • duties and responsibilities for the Board of Directors positions
