The Barbados-based financial institution has announced the launch of a dedicated microsite, www.caribank.org/43rd-annual-meeting for the Board of Governors meeting at Sandals Grande St. Lucian Spa & Beach Resort, St. Lucia.
Assistant Bank Secretary, Mr. Volville Forsythe stated, “The Annual Meeting of the Board of Governors is a major event on the Bank’s calendar. The microsite will serve as a quick reference point for delegates and interested persons on the specifics of the meeting, inclusive of a detailed agenda of planned activities with seminar times, overviews and presenters’ biographies. The site will also serve as a repository of articles, photographs, videos and publications shared during the meeting.”
He added: “The creation of a microsite is in keeping with our ‘green’ meeting policy to share information electronically wherever possible. As such, limited copies of our 2012 Annual Report will be printed and instead, persons are invited to visit the website after the Opening Ceremony on May 22, to download the 2012 Annual Report and to view the pre-recorded and written statements by the Governors.”
It has been designed to provide key information in an easy-to-navigate, user-friendly format. It is segmented into three main sections: About the Annual Meeting, Agenda and Newsroom.
About the Meeting features information about the host countries, registration guidelines and media accreditation details, while the Agenda provides scheduled activities by day and category, as well as seminar overviews. Stories, photos and videos from the Meeting and its pre-activities can be accessed in the Newsroom.
