2017 Convention Invitation from WICUA Secretary Mr. Johnson

Hello Fellow Umpires,

It is Convention time again. We are in the year of the WICUA Biennial Convention to be held in Kingston, Jamaica From July 1 to July 8, 2017. Please find attached, information from Jamaica with regards to accommodation at the University Campus of the West Indies where the convention is scheduled to take place. There are other hotel accommodation in Kingston that are available for persons that want to go that route. Jamaica’s organizing committee will provide the hotels’ information in the near future. Please make your arrangements accordingly by communicating with Mr. Norman Malcolm, President of the Jamaica Cricket Umpires’ Association to provide these details.

Secondly, please note that all reports and articles for the Convention Brochure are to be sent to the WICUA Secretary by email, by March 31, 2017.

Thirdly, “Nominations for election to the WICUA Executive shall be submitted in writing to the WICUA Secretary not later than three months before the date of the General Council Meeting, provided that the nominees indicate to the Honorary Secretary their willingness to undertake the office.” This means that nominations must be submitted to the Secretary by March 31 2017.

I look forward to your cooperation as usual and please make your plans for Convention 2017.

NB: Please ensure that all your members are provided with this information.
