ASUA/CCAN President appointed to FINA Bureau:

Mr. Orban Mendoza of Puerto Rico, President of the Amateur Swimming Union of the Americas ("ASUA") and the Central American and Caribbean Amateur Swimming Confederation ("CCCAN") and formerly a member of the FINA Technical Swimming Committee, was elected to the FINA Bureau during the Technical Swimming Congress held during the 2005 FINA WOrld Swimming Championships in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Mr. Mendoza replaces Mr. Manuel de Jesus also of Puerto Rico on the FINA Bureau, the highest body within the sports International Federation. SwimBahamas.com extends its congratulations to Mr. Mendoza on this major accomplishment. Mr. Mendoza last visited The Bahamas in 2001 when he conducted a Swimming Officials Clinic under the auspices of the FINA Development Programme. Mr. Javier Careaga of Mexico succeeded Mr. Mendoza on the FINA Technical Swimming Committee.

So when is the BSF going to hold its elections?

SwimBahamas.com has been peppered with e-mails and phone calls asking when is the BSF going to hold elections of Officers for the 2005/2007 period. Constitutionally, elections were due during January 2005 but the current Executive has been ominously silent on the topic and no General Congress Meetings of the BSF have been held since March of 2003. That means that in the 2 years and 8 months that they have held office, the current Executive has failed to present reports from any of the elected Officers, but more importantly, has also failed to produce a single Financial Report of any kind. So much for "openness and transparency"! Anyway, elections are now scheduled for 6.00 P.M. on 14th November, 2005, at the Betty Kelly Kenning National Swim Complex. Expect a controversial and provocative meeting as the current Executive attempts to explain 32 months worth of activity in a few short hours. Also, the next Executive will only hold office for 15 months, until January 2007, not the usual 2 years.
