Article 1 - Membership

Section I. MEMBERSHIP QUALIFICATIONS:

Membership in this Corporation shall consist of and be restricted to those community oriented, and sponsored Amateur Hockey Associations wishing to participate in community oriented team concept as outlined in the Articles of incorporation and By-Laws heretofore adopted by this Corporation; but in any event the Board of Directors shall have final authority on approval of any application for membership and termination of membership for any reason, by affirmative vote of two-thirds of the Board of Directors at a regularly scheduled Board of Directors meeting. The precept of the ACHL lies in the fact that it provides league competition for community based hockey teams. This presumes that member associations have both types of programs. Thus, continued ACHL membership in its travel program is contingent upon having a viable house program. Travel team entry in the absence of a house program therefore requires the approval of a majority of the Delegates at a regularly scheduled meeting.

Member divisions within the ACHL have the option to waive the "Member Association" rule if submitted and approved by a two-thirds vote of the ACHL Executive board.

Section II. MEMBERSHIP NON-TRANSFERABLE:

No membership shall be transferable or assignable except by a two-thirds affirmative vote of the Board of Directors in good standing. A member association in good standing which does not enter a team in a given season is permitted to enter a team or teams in subsequent seasons without the entry restrictions placed on new member associations.

Section III. RESIGNATION OF MEMBERSHIP:

An association may formally resign its membership by submitting a letter signed by the association President and Secretary to the ACHL Secretary. Readmission into the ACHL will be according to Section I above.

Section IV. PROBATION, SUSPENSION OR REMOVAL FROM MEMBERSHIP:

Probation, suspension, or removal of a member association from membership requires a two-thirds affirmative vote of the Board of Directors at a regularly scheduled or special meeting called for that purpose. Recommendation of such actions and conditions shall be the responsibility of the Executive Board.
Section V. VOTING:

Each participating Hockey Association that has qualified for membership in the Corporation shall be entitled to one vote on any and all matters which come before a Division meeting: it being further provided that each participating association shall appoint a delegate, coach and an alternate delegate to this Corporation and the alternate delegate or coach in the event that the delegate is absent, shall be entitled to cast such a vote.

Each member of the Executive Board shall be entitled to one vote.

Section VI. OMISSION OF LIABILITY:

No member association or associations shall be in any manner, individually or collectively, liable for any act or omission of this corporation, nor for any loss, damage or injury of whatsoever kind or nature suffered by or occurring to any other member association or to any other person, concern or body.
