Samuda takes up CCS Governance Commission role

Jamaica Olympic Association President Christopher Samuda has taken his seat on the Governance Commission of Centro Caribe Sports (CCS), the commission with supervisory responsibility for other commissions of the regional body formerly known as the Central American and Caribbean Sports Organisation.

Owner of the oldest continuing regional multi-sport championship event in the world, the Central American and Caribbean Games, Centro Caribe Sports has a membership of 37 national governing sport associations from English-, Spanish- and French-speaking countries.

“Centro Caribe Sports is evolving into a model sport apex body with a strong governance framework and ethos which embodies the principles of Olympism to which I am committed, and therefore I am grateful for this privileged opportunity to be a co-architect of governance of this respected sport institution,” Samuda said.

Samuda, who is a member of the Executive Board of CCS, says he is an advocate of transformational governance, which he says “begins first at home, and when we speak of sovereignty and autonomy in the context of sport administration we come right back, fundamentally, to the principles of good corporate governance”.

The governing regional organisation, led by Samuda in his capacity as president of the Legal Commission, is conducting a review of its statutes.

“An essential element of the governance model is the legislative framework, which must manifest not only what is right, but the right way of doing things, with the end result being right,” he said.
