FORMATION - TO SEE A LIST OF CURRENT DIRECTORS SCROLL DOWN

The Caribbean Marine Association Formation Workshop was held on February 22-24 2005 at the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean’s headquarters in Port of Spain, Trinidad. 

The workshop was attended by public and private sector representatives from Antigua, Belize, Barbados, St. Lucia, Grenada, St. Vincent, Dominica, Trinidad and Tobago, Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Curacao and Jamaica.  The Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States and the Caribbean Tourism Organisation were also in attendance. 

Christopher Marshall, President of the Yacht Services Association of Trinidad and Tobago delivered the welcome address.  In his speech, Mr. Nigel Pierre, Director, UNECLAC acknowledged the role that ECLAC’s Eastern Caribbean yachting study had played in bringing about the workshop proceedings while Mr. Anthony Smallwood, Charge d’Affaires of the Delegation of the European Union urged the delegates to consider all issues affecting Caribbean development.  The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Tourism delivered the feature address on behalf of the Honourable Howard Chin Lee, Minister of Tourism. 

During the first half of Day One of the workshop, Mr. Cuthbert Didier of ALL Inc. presented the Policy Framework for the Association and during the afternoon session, Mr. Richard Williams of Tourism Global, presented the Organisational Structure and Constitution for the Association.  On the second day, working groups focused on confirming the work program and agreeing to the proposed Constitution.  On the final day, a Steering Committee was formed and charged with the responsibility of finalizing the Constitution and a fee structure.

A Board of Directors of the Caribbean Marine Association was duly formed with Directors drawn from the marine and yachting associations of Antigua & Barbuda, the British Virgin Islands, Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Maarten, St. Vincent & The Grenadines and Trinidad & Tobago.  Subsequently, The Bahamas was added to the group.
