Archery Guyana discusses future endeavours with Director of Sport
Archery Guyana continues to maintain a strong relationship with the National Sports Commission (NSC) in order to facilitate the growth and development of the sport.
In its most recent interaction, Archery Guyana President Mohamed Khan and Secretary Vidushi Persaud-McKinnon paid a courtesy call to Director of Sport, Christopher Jones at the NSC to discuss plans, initiatives and the direction that Archery Guyana will be heading in.
During this visit, the pair from Archery Guyana updated the Director of Sport on the progress of the body as they discussed their development plans, including the proposed Junior Archery Programme, Schools Programme and Para-Archery
Archery Guyana took the opportunity to advise the Director of Sport of its plans to host an International Olympic Archery Judges Seminar in collaboration with World Archery Americas. It was agreed that this would benefit many Guyanese and has the potential to lift Guyana’s profile in the international sporting community. At the end of this Seminar, Archery Guyana intends to host an International Archery Competition.
Among some of the conclusions that were drawn in the audience with the Director of Sport, a consensus was arrived at to pursue greater outreach programmes in collaboration. It was also agreed that Archery Guyana would endeavour to take outdoor archery to other facilities outside the capital city with the possibility of collaborating to develop archery in all regions of Guyana.
Additionally, the Director of Sport confirmed arrangements were in place for Archery Guyana to have access to the National Gymnasium for indoor archery and to the Leonora Track and Field Facility for outdoor archery.
The Director and Archery Guyana agreed to collaborate to build a stronger working relationship in promoting and developing the novel sport for the benefit of all Guyanese. The Directors of Archery Guyana committed to continuing to maintain the highest standards of governance and transparency in all their activities.
In this regard, Khan took the opportunity to lay over a copy of Archery Guyana’s recent Audited Financial Statement duly audited by an external auditor pursuant to NSC requirements and other supporting documents, thereby being the first sporting body in Guyana to comply with the 2019 requirements.
