The General Council of the East Bank Football Association (EBFA) on Monday met and adopted a new constitution that will govern the administration of the sport in the association going forward.
As mandated by the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) and guided by the world governing body FIFA, the EBFA’s affiliates which included Kuru Kururu Warriors, Soesdyke Falcons, Grove Hi Tech, Diamond United, Herstelling Raiders, Mocha Champs and Agricola Red Triangle met for just over three hours at Tapie Bar, Herstelling.
After being guided through the document by Secretary Franklin Wilson, the new constitution on the East Bank was unanimously adopted.
The new executive will be an eleven member body, constituted of a president, two vice presidents, secretary, treasurer, assistant secretary/treasurer and five committee members.
The two year term for the life of each executive was maintained with a new clause (Article 35:4), stipulating that the Officers may seek re-election at the following year’s AGM; however, no member of the executive shall serve for more than two consecutive terms.
EBFA President Wayne Francois complimented members present for their commitment and support in charting a new way forward for the association in support of the overall forward thrust for the sport in Guyana.
A date for the election of office bearers as stipulated by the new document will be set shortly following a meeting of the executive committee.
