New netball head starts with strategy meeting
Unabridged participation, extensive strategic planning and the progress of its international status are a few of the priorities which newly elected T&T Netball Association (TTNA) president Patricia Butcher will focus on for the next two years.
Butcher, who served as the TTNA president from 2009-2011, takes up the mantle with another former president, Martha Archer, who was elected first vice-president. Dr Myrna Ransome is the new second vice-president, while Allison Ashby and Ashelle Legall sit as secretary and assistant secretary, respectively. Butcher replaces Francesca Rousseau.
The election took place on February 24. Denise Cayenne was elected the association’s treasurer, Lynette Duncan, the public relations officer, and Marlene Gilbert and Earnest Ferdinand the two trustees.
The new president, despite having never played the sport at a competitive level, is known for maintaining top administrative positions. Butcher currently serves as executive director of the T&T Hotel and Tourism Institute (TTHTI). She formerly held the post of Youth Training Employment and Partnership Programme (Ytepp) CEO.
She added among her priorities would be the implementation of official participation in the sport by children between five to seven years of age. She said the TTNA plans to meet with primary schools to implement the sport’s development in youth.
Butcher hopes that the administration will continue to strive as it did during her two-year tenure which concluded around the time when the TTNA was recognised as the top administrative body at the First Citizens Sports Foundation awards in 2011.
