|The current Chairman will lead a Docs on Ice Executive meeting at the Docs on Ice tournament each year. This will include a discussion of tournament issues, rules, disciplinary actions, future tournament planning, and other related issues.
|The current Chairman and committee will hand over the tournament at its completion to the following year, and will help with the transition process to the next year.
