Dr. Williams also announced that he will be taking steps to institute a Code of Ethics for the organization and urged executive and ordinary members to do all in their means to uplift the athletes and their fellow colleagues.

He also stated that of priority for his association is the upgrade of the YASCO grounds, which he says, is essential for the increase in athlete participation and the hosting of regional meets.  He noted that the construction of sandpits in the schools and increasing female involvement in athletics would also be addressed by the association.

Also elected during the association’s Annual General Meeting were Judy Blackman - Treasurer, Joann Small - Assistant Treasurer, Angella Maginley - Women’s Representative and Peter Cuffy, Cordova Simon, Richard Lindsay, Olivette Michael and Ted Dailey as Members.
