BFVA to hold by-election on February 27

The Barbados Film and Video Association (BFVA) will hold a by-election on February 27 to choose a new public relations officer (PRO).

Singer and television producer Jamal Slocombe parted ways with the BFVA, less than two months after Slocombe took up the post as the organization’s spokesman.

“Moving forward, there will be a general meeting on February 27, 2017 where this matter can be addressed further,” BFVA President Damien Pinder said in a notice to members, a copy of which was shared with Barbados TODAY.

“This meeting will also feature a by-election where the membership will choose a new public relations officer and assistant secretary treasurer, as the elected person to that post, Ramona Grandison, had to resign as a result of conflict of interest with her job.”

Slocombe’s short-lived relationship with the association officially ended Tuesday, February 7, after he was forced to resign as PRO.
