MULDER ELECTED TO USA HOCKEY EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE

            At the 2015 USA Hockey Annual Congress in Colorado Springs, Colo., the Board of Directors of USA Hockey elected Don Mulder, from Fond du Lac, WI, to a three-year term on the 15 member USA Hockey Executive Committee.  The Executive Committee acts on behalf of the 91 member Board of Directors in between regular Board meetings.  USA Hockey is designated by the United States Olympic Committee as the National Governing Body (NGB) for amateur ice hockey in the United States in accordance with Federal Law under the Amateur Sports Act.  Membership in USA Hockey of all registered participants (players, coaches and officials) in the 2014-15 season exceeded 610,000, with an additional 491,000 managers, volunteers and parents, both of which are all-time USA Hockey records.
           Mulder has been a Central District Director for USA Hockey since 2012, and was elected to his second three-year term at the Central District Caucus at the Annual Congress, prior to the Board of Directors meeting.  He has been a member of the USA Hockey Adult Council for more than two decades.  He is a past recipient of the USA Hockey Distinguished Service Award.
           Mulder has been an elected Regional Director for WAHA since 1982 and has been the President of the Wisconsin Amateur Hockey Association since 2010.  During that time, he served as Vice-president and served on numerous committees, helping WAHA grow to almost 20,000 players and coaches.  He was inducted into the Wisconsin Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998, and is the past-president and a member of the Board of Directors for the Hall of Fame.  Mulder began his career of service to hockey when he was elected to the Board of Directors of the Waupun Hockey Assn., and went on to serve as the president of Waupun Hockey for nine years.  During that time, he was instrumental in the growth of the Waupun program and the construction, funding and maintenance of an indoor ice arena for that community.
