The FIFA appointed Normalization Committee (NC) hosted the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2020/2021 on Sunday 26th September 2021 at 10.00 am via the zoom online platform.
The AGM was attended by most of the TTFA Membership. Robert Hadad, Chairperson of the NC, addressed many of the challenges that the TTFA is faced with. While many of the issues were addressed, the following items are still to be resolved/discussed:
• Approval of the Audited Financial Statements for the year ended 31st December 2019
• Expulsion of the Coaches Association
• Admission for Membership – pursuant to the Unified Football Coaches of T&T application.
These items will be tabled at an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) to be held in 14 days.
The members are tasked to review the 2019 financial statements in detail and understand the implications to the TTFA, and table all additional questions to the external auditors Madan Ramnarine and Co. Madan Ramnarine and Co, the Chartered Accounting firm, was appointed as the organization’s external auditors in 2018 by the TTFA Membership.
In addition, during the 2018 AGM, the TTFA Membership attempted to expel the Coaches Associations from the Membership based on inactivity/dormancy. However, this motion was not properly executed as per the TTFA Constitution, and will now to be addressed at the upcoming EGM.
In closing, NC Chairman Robert Hadad stated, “If we really wish to rebuild football in this country, then we must embrace the debt crisis as the entire membership’s problem. It is an unprecedented problem, but it is a problem that we all share.The issues have been aired, improvements in governance outlined, the need for fundraising and debt repayment stated – let us work together to restore this fractured association.”
