Williams’ re-appointment comes just one month following the NOC’s Annual General Meeting and elections held on December 19th of last year.
Mr. Williams outlined his top priorities in what is expected to be a packed year.
“My first business of priority would be organising for the Commonwealth Games this year. In March, the Queen’s Baton Relay will be passing through Antigua which will be a challenge for me because it is not something that I handled before. LeRoy Williams was the one who usually handled that event. This is also a very active year for games within the sporting arena,” he said.
“You also have the CAC games later down in November in addition to the Youth Olympic Games in September and with all three games, we will have athletes participating.”
“One of my major aims over the next four years is to provide the National Federations with more knowledge whether it be about seminars, programmes and just how we can rally them to be a little more energized, organised and produce more athletes because without the national federations producing athletes, the work of the NOC will become sort of null and void as nothing would be there to do.” Williams said.
His tenure will run for four years, ending in 2017. On behalf of the President, Executive Members and Staff of the NOC, congratulations on your re-appointment!
