KINGSTON, Jamaica – The now West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) will be renamed Cricket West Indies shortly.
The official announcement of the name change was made by WICB President, Dave Cameron at the just concluded annual general meeting and the board of directors quarterly meeting, held in Kingston this past Friday and Saturday.
While that name change will be happening, independent director, Don Wehby will be leading a team of other independents to include Clifford Reis, Ricky Skerritt and three others to be named, to assess the undone recommendations from the Lucky, Patterson and Wilkin reports.
These reports have over time made suggestions regarding changes to the WICB and its governance and management structures. “The terms of reference of this team, will focus primarily on the recommendations that have not been implemented and for the team to examine if there is an opportunity to bring anything back to the Territorial Boards and the WICB for adoption by the shareholders,” Cameron stated in a press release.
Cameron added: “Once that process is complete, a change management expert will be brought in to complete the process for a smooth transition.”
Cameron also reported to the shareholders that the WICB had a surplus of US$3.4 million as at September 30, 2015.
President Cameron said he was confident in revealing that the projections for the next four years indicate that the Board will be able to cover costs for its domestic competitions and cricket programmes. (Jamaica Observer)
