Over the next 14 days, Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) president Brian Lewis, will establish a local Governance Commission which will comprise of four local individuals who have no affiliation to any Olympic sporting organisation.
This commission will work towards putting together a Sport Governance Code for TT that meets the international benchmarks in relation to good governance. Lewis has already brought Olympic Sport Governance professor and head of Sport Studies at the University of Stirling in Scotland, Leigh Robinson, on board for this initiative and discussion with the other four proposed members of the Commission will be concluded by the end of July.
According to Lewis, the Commission will begin working on the Code in August since it is being hailed as a roadmap for Olympic Sport Governance in Trinidad and Tobago. The former Harvard man, who was elected as a member of the Caribbean Association of National Olympic Committee (CANOC) Executive Board in October 2014, is also chairman of the CANOC International and National Olympic Committees Relations Commission, and will be pushing to have the Good Sport Governance Code included in the TTOC Constitution at next year’s Annual General Meeting.
