A southeast Saskatchewan resident has been elected to Hockey Canada’s board of directors.
Mary Anne Veroba will serve a two-year term on the board, Hockey Canada announced Monday. Veroba recently wrapped up a seven-year term as the chairperson of the Saskatchewan Hockey Association. She was the first female chairperson in the association’s history.
Veroba spent 17 years on the Sask. Hockey board.
In a news release, Hockey Canada said Veroba has spent more than 30 years around the game of hockey, largely in administrative roles, and it is her passion that keeps her involved in the game. Her involvement began with local teams in Lampman, which led to her being elected president of her local hockey association.
When she was not around the rink, Veroba continued to serve her community as a registered nurse for 38 years. Now retired, she has a new career writing children’s books and creating a pottery studio.
She is one of five new directors on the Hockey Canada board.
