The President of the Liberia National Table Tennis Association (LNTTA) has said the association has embarked on a constitutional amendment and is expected to come up with the draft amendment in March of this year.
In an exclusive interview with this paper, Mr. Lloyd Brownell said the association current constitution is being amended to conform to international standard.
Mr. Brownell disclosed that Liberia is among the nations that formed the Alliance of the International Table Tennis Federation, and as such, “it beholds the leadership to have a constitution that is in line and on par with the International Table Tennis Federation constitution.”
According to him, the present constitution is one of a sheet which does not conform to a constitutional standard. He said the association is working tirelessly to ensure by March the draft constitution is presented to the International Table Tennis Federation.
When the constitution is amended, he stated, it will pave the way for the association’s election.
He assured that a team of committed and dedicated members, veterans of LNTTA as well as experts from the International Table Tennis Federation and the African Table Tennis Federation are working to ensure that the LNTTA revised constitution is ready on time.
Meanwhile, Mr. Brownell has also disclosed that the code of conduct of the organization is also be drafted alongside the constitution.
“You see the old materials we were using as our constitution document allows players to vote during elections, but I must tell you that worldwide this is not acceptable,” the LNTTA boss said.
Mr. Brownell added that his dream is to see standards set in the association considering the support he is receiving from members of the association.
