CAMSOC creating digital system to register SEA Games volunteers

The Cambodian SEA Games Organising Committee (CAMSOC) is accelerating plans – in collaboration with its partner Pathmazing, one of the country’s largest software development firm – to launch an online management system for registering volunteers for the 2023 SEA Games.

In preparation for the online registration of volunteers, CAMSOC convened an internal committee meeting at the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia (NOCC) on November 3 under the presidency of CAMSOC secretary-general Vath Chamroeun.

“Today we held an internal meeting of the digital management commission. We have developed a technological system called GMS which will allow the public, including young people, citizens as well as foreigners, to register as volunteers,” he said.

During the meeting, Sok Sabayna – undersecretary of state at the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport and chairman of CAMSOC’s Volunteer Commission – presented the management of the online system in two parts. Part 1 is for volunteers who register to participate directly and the other is for volunteers who will offer inspiration and help from a distance.

“We have reached a consensus on the official announcement of the registration system. It will take place as soon as possible after the [November 7-9] Water Festival. We are speeding up our review of the digital registration forms,” said Chamroeun.

"We will strengthen make sure the online portal will inspire confidence and trust in each volunteer who participates in the 2023 SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games. Pathmazing … agreed that this work must be completed before we announce it, but in general we have achieved good results,” he added.

In addition to discussing the registration system, he said it is important to encourage the permanent staff of each CAMSOC commission to begin work on improving administrative and monitoring mechanisms, in order to host the SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games 2023 successfully.
