Many families have left the Phantoms organization. With a strong board, we can meet the interests of families and help the Phantoms grow. Here is an opportunity for your voice to be heard and help in this effort.

The Delco Phantoms Ice Hockey Board which operates at IceWorks in Aston, PA does not have bylaws published on its website or available for distribution to its hockey members. Pennsylvania law requires nonprofit corporations to have a board of directors, which is responsible for managing the organization. Every board must have a president, secretary, and a treasurer, although one individual may perform more than one role. The board may draft bylaws, which will provide how new board members may be added or removed from the board. If no bylaws are in place, Pennsylvania law provides that each board member will only serve for one year. Board members have the responsibility of acting in the best interest of the nonprofit, meaning they may not advance their own financial interests while serving the board, and they must make informed financial decisions for the organization.

According to this law, the existing board members of the Delco Phantoms are expired, and the below signed hockey families request an immediate meeting and election of the board to take place no later than October 27, 2016 at IceWorks in Aston, PA. This meeting will be posted on the Phantoms website and published (emailed) to all Delco Phantoms members (which means all families with children registered for all levels of Phantoms hockey, managers, and existing board members) at a minimum two weeks prior to the meeting. Nominations from the floor will be open to the general membership at the election, and can only include individuals who have children playing for the Phantoms.

If such action is not taken, the signers to this petition will report this violation to the State of Pennsylvania.
