Town-hall meeting set for Friday in Jamaica
Kingston, Jamaica — President of the WICB Whycliffe “Dave” Cameron and Vice President Emmanuel Nanthan have been engaging stakeholders through a series of town-hall meetings around the region since May this year.
So far, the top brass of the WICB have had dialogue with the fans of the game from Barbados, Dominica, St. Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana.
This Friday, August 7, it’s Jamaica’s turn – and the famous Kingston Cricket Club will provide the backdrop for the next town-hall meeting from 6 to 8 p.m.
“We are taking into consideration all the views to see how the Board of Directors and management team can facilitate change for a positive outcome for the game in the region,” said Cameron.
“The region’s cricket requires all of its affiliates and stakeholders to make the product develop and grow, and we look forward to hearing how we can continue to make a positive impact on the sport.”
Fans will get their chance to ask questions and make comments about the sport and how the region can merge its efforts to make the cricket industry more viable than it has been.
“We’re enthusiastic about continuing to use these sessions to listen to concerns and share information about where West Indies cricket is now, our strategic goals for the future and how the fans can impact upon the way we progress,” said Cameron.
The topics covered at the town-hall meetings have been wide-ranging. They have included selection matters, the operation of the WICB Professional Cricket League, player relations, player development, pitch preparation and governance issues.
