Board Resignation

Andreas Kaisser has resigned his position on the AIHA board with effect from our last board meeting (on 15 October).  The board has reluctantly accepted his decision and is sure that all members of the AIHA will join it in thanking Andreas for the many years of extremely hard work and dedicated service that he has put into our Association.  He has worked for us in a number of capacities over the years (sometimes simultaneously) and his contribution will unquestionably prove to be a lasting one.  We are relieved to assure everyone that he is not leaving the Association and will, we hope, be regularly seen around our two rinks coaching senior and junior players alike for many years to come.

Andreas, thank you.

Tomas Jonsson
AIHA Secretary
