Field Hockey BC (FHBC) is delighted to announce a new Membership Registration System Partnership with our National Sport Organization (NSO), Field Hockey Canada for 2022-23. Over the course of the last few weeks, Field Hockey BC has completed an assessment as to whether the Society should remain autonomous to its BC Membership Registration process and re-build the custom FHBC Registration platform or look to partner directly with the NSO – Field Hockey Canada.
This Community Communique acts as the first of three scheduled communiques that will be released over the course of the next five weeks informing the BC Membership of:
- The intent to Partner with Field Hockey Canada in the provision of a new Membership Registration Platform for 2022-23 (July 8, 2022 – Communique #1)
- A Step-by-Step Guide to Members on “How To” Register a Membership in 2022-23 (August 1, 2022 – Communique #2)
- Notice confirming that the 2022-23 Membership Registration is Open (August 15, 2022 – Communique #3)
Field Hockey BC appreciates that any change to a Membership Registration process has the ability to impact the time taken by the BC Membership to navigate such change. FHBC is extremely appreciative in advance of the BC memberships patience as we move through this collective change together. As this is a partnership between FHBC and Field Hockey Canada, this means that BC members will have the opportunity to receive customer support through both organizations and both organizations are currently planning to articulate how you may connect and contact each organization should you require assistance with the new Membership Registration process for 2022-23.
As a polite reminder, the 2022-23 season begins on September 1, 2022 with the intent to open Online Membership Registration for the 2022-23 season through the new registration platform effective August 15, 2022. The Membership Registration Platform will thereafter remain open throughout the seasonal year until such time as a new registration cycle begins ahead of the 2023-24 season.
This project collaboration with Field Hockey Canada is intended to enable both FHBC and Field Hockey Canada to effectively and efficiently manage Field Hockey Participant Data and in doing so assist field hockey planning, assist member communication, and provide transparency and accountability in data reporting (to the Membership, as well as to the Federal and Provincial Government). The FHBC team looks forward to building on this communique in the days to come with the most important “How To Register” Communique #2 scheduled for release on August 1, 2022.
Yours in sport,
Field Hockey BC July 8, 2022
