Elected to the Presidency was Orin Joseph with Michael Persaud as his deputy. Derick Collymore is the Secretary, Ronald Beharry has been returned as Treasurer and Sonia Goodluck is the new Assistant Secretary /Treasurer.
Basil Bradshaw is again the PRO with Mark Wiltshire the Organizing Secretary and the two Organizing Secretaries being William Sargeant and Yonnette Christmas.
The committee members are Faye Joseph, Kevin Boston, Erwin Chapman and Rudy Collins.
According the Bradshaw, the new executive has mandated itself to take Dominoes to a higher level and attempt to have it evolve into a sport and not just a ‘game’.
The members of the new executive met with Guyana’s Sports Minister Dr Frank Anthony along with Parliamentary Secretary within the ministry Steve Ninvalle to discuss their proposals and have his blessing in their effort to make Dominoes a truly national event by attracting more interested persons and teams form a wider cross section of the society.
