TROY, Mich. (September 10, 2020) – Due to the continuing impact of COVID-19, the American Collegiate Hockey Association has implemented immediate measures to ensure the financial and operational stability of the overall association.
With the approval of the ACHA Executive Board, following recommendations from an ad-hoc Audit Committee tasked to evaluate the ACHA’s operational needs during the Fall 2020 semester, those measures include:
● Temporary furlough of the ACHA Director of Hockey Operations salary; and
● Temporary suspension of all stipends for ACHA staff until further notice.
All ACHA staff members, including the five Divisional Commissioners, the Assistant Director of Hockey Operations and the Communications Manager, have agreed to continue in their respective roles and duties with the ACHA while these measures are in effect.
All communication that traditionally would be sent to the ACHA Staff should continue as normal.
All communication that traditionally would be sent to the ACHA Director of Hockey Operations should now be directed to ACHA Executive Director Craig Barnett at firstname.lastname@example.org.
These temporary measures will remain in effect until further notice and will be reassessed regularly. These unfortunate measures were not easy to implement but are necessary to ensure the ACHA has the ability to meet its contractual obligations during the Fall 2020 semester.
For further information, please contact ACHA Executive Director Craig Barnett at email@example.com.
