A long-time volunteer in Saskatchewan hockey circles has announced she is stepping down from her role, which is one of the most high-profile in the province.
Mary Anne Veroba of Lampman informed the Saskatchewan Hockey Association (SHA) last week that she was resigning after serving 17 years on the board, the last seven as the chairperson of the SHA board.
She was the first woman ever to be chairperson of the SHA, which is more than 100 years old.
Veroba joined the board in 2003 as the representative for Zone 1, and served on the SHA board in several capacities before becoming president in 2013.
“Mary Anne, thank you for your years of dedicated service to growing the game of hockey in Saskatchewan and best of luck with whatever the future holds,” the SHA wrote in a post on its Facebook page on Monday.
Veroba said it has been a privilege to serve the members of the SHA over the years.
“I know that hockey is in good hands and will continue to play an important role in the lives of many. Thank you for allowing me to be part of this great game,” she said.
Tim Hubic will serve as the new chairperson of the board.
