The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) is setting up a Governance Commission.

A TTOC press release on Monday stated that the Commission, established by TTOC president Brian Lewis will comprise five individuals who have no known official affiliation to any local Olympic sport organisation. Of the five persons, four are from Trinidad and Tobago and the fifth is well known Olympic sport governance expert Prof Leigh Robinson, Head of Sport Studies at the University of Stirling in Scotland.

The release said the intention of setting up the Commission was to put together a Sport Governance Code that meets international benchmarks in relation to good governance.

The TTOC said discussions with the proposed members of the Commission will conclude by the end of this month.

The Commission will begin work on the Code in August Lewis said.

The release added that the Commission will be pushing to have the Good Sport Governance Code included in the TTOC Constitution at next year’s Annual General Meeting. And the hope is that the Code will serve as a road map for Olympic sport governance in Trinidad and
