New CANOC president to be appointed on Saturday



OUTGOING president of the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committees (CANOC) Brian Lewis hopes his follower continues to promote for the approving of associate member status to 8 local areas.

Lewis’ five-year period at the helm concerns an end on Saturday when the XX General Assembly of CANOC is held at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Port of Spain.

The assembly starts on Friday with the ninth CANOC workshop and concludes with the executive board elections on Saturday. Positions being objected to are president, very first vice-president, secretary basic, treasurer and 2 executive members.

Lewis’ post will be objected to St Vincent & & the Grenadines secretary basic Keith Joseph and Jamaica Olympic Association president Christopher Samuda.

The elections committee, chaired by Sandra Osborne KC, will offer and handle the ballot procedure to provide safe outcomes for the elections along with choices on the choice of the host for the 2nd edition of the Caribbean Games.

On his exit, Lewis stated, “It has actually been an honour and a benefit to have actually functioned as CANOC president. I need to acknowledge the group effort of the executive committee members.

” Secretary basic Keith Joseph in specific has actually been a tower of strength and function. Covid-19 made things truly hard. Credit to the executive committee, CANOC members, Guadeloupe’s NOC and their president Alain Soreze.”

In October 2018, Lewis, a previous TT Olympic Committee president, was re-elected as CANOC president. He was enacted at the organisation’s basic assembly in Haiti.

Lewis was initially chosen to the function in Barranquilla, Colombia, in 2017 considering that he took control of the rest of Steve Stoute’s term after the Barbados authorities resigned following 17 years in charge.

” I had some huge shoes to fill following on from my predecessor Steve Stoute- the very first CANOC president. We had the ability to host the very first Caribbean Games in Guadeloupe previously this year. That was big for the Caribbean as it took an overall synergy.

” We in CANOC continue to promote for Pan Am Sports to give associate member status to Anguilla, Turks and Caicos, Curacao, Martinique, Guadeloupe, French Guiana, St Maarten and Montserrat and for a one nation, one vote guideline.”

This weekend’s assembly will join 30 NOCs and Commonwealth Games associations of the Caribbean Olympic Movement.

Additionally, as part of the International Olympic Committee’s dedication to the United Nations Sport for Climate Action structure and its assistance to the Olympic Movement to safeguard our world, CANOC will be trying to reduce making use of paper for its workshop and basic assembly, providing rather, as numerous files as possible in digital format.
