Please note, ALL of the VILFHA Executive Positions are open but there are some very important roles that need to be filled as the current holders are stepping down after this season. Those are:

- The President
- The Vice President
- The Treasurer
- Director of Operations (Vacant)

It is incredibly important we fill these roles to ensure smooth league operations. Please see the job descriptions attached to this email and share widely among your teams. We thank Sandy Grimwood, Heather Wheatley and Krista Thompson for their dedication these past years.
