Why was the position created? Though MAHA is built on the base of its volunteers, MAHA has grown both in size and in need to where certain volunteer aspects of MAHA were getting to be to large. By combining the major aspects of MAHA into one position we are able to not only keep the organizational aspect of MAHA efficient, but we are able to utilize the position to constantly look at ways to update and better our association in all aspects. With the need for more ice time in Mankato, it is very beneficial to have a position created where community ties can be created and constant attention can be given to the needs of MAHA's participants.
