BCA meeting put back
The Barbados Cricket Association’s Annual General Meeting came to an abrupt end this evening.
Members of the association exited their conference room at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre seemingly unhappy over a matter. The session commenced around 5:30 p.m. and by 6:45 p.m. members were already leaving.
Barbados Cricket Association president Joel Garner told Barbados TODAY: “We just dealt with a few matters on the agenda and the meeting was adjourned. We have postponed the meeting until August 20 and the voting will take place on the 27th [of August].”
Pressed further as to what took place during the brief meeting Garner responded that he would rather not say anything at this point.
Today’s session was supposed to be the first of two meetings with the other scheduled for next week Thursday when members of the BCA were supposed to cast their votes and select members to run the affairs of the BCA. But now they will have to wait an additional two to three weeks before that happens.
President Joel Garner will face Conde Riley yet again in this year’s election showdown after the same two candidates met two years ago and contested the top post.
Among some of the other BCA members who attended today’s session were former third vice-president Jeff Broomes who will contest the post of secretary that is currently held by Anthea Ishmael. Calvin Hope is also vying for the position of first vice- president and will be up against Deighton Smith.
