Three Re­sign from Ca­lypso As­so­ci­a­tion

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The Chair­man, the Trea­surer and the Act­ing Sec­re­tary/As­sis­tant Sec­re­tary have all re­signed their posts of the Saint Lu­cia Ca­lypso As­so­ci­a­tion ef­fec­tive Wed­nes­day Fe­bru­ary 18, 2015.

Ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from the for­mer Chair­man, David Jor­dan, the res­ig­na­tions were an­tic­i­pated for months but were de­layed as he sought to en­sure all out­stand­ing bills due by the As­so­ci­a­tion were hon­oured and paid. “In view of the re­cent pay­ments by the in­sti­tu­tions that col­lab­o­rated with the As­so­ci­a­tion to host re­cent events in the past, the As­so­ci­a­tion has now set­tled all ser­vice providers,” the let­ter read.

The Chair­man went on to ex­press his ap­pre­ci­a­tion dur­ing the past year but wished to note his own in­abil­ity to con­tinue to be the Chair­man at this time. He failed to go into specifics but ex­pressed his best wishes to the fra­ter­nity of Ca­lypso and Soca artists and thanked the mem­bers of the Ex­ec­u­tive and the Chair­per­sons of the var­i­ous Com­mit­tees and the many “well wish­ers” dur­ing the ten­ure. He also trusts that the Gen­eral Coun­cil will iden­tify new can­di­dates to con­sti­tute an Ex­ec­u­tive as an im­me­di­ate pri­or­ity.
