NOCC prepares to hold annual General Assembly

Two major statutory reforms pertaining to the Olympic Movement Autonomy and Sports Arbitration will be introduced during the one-day annual general assembly of the National Olympic Committee of Cambodia on February 15.

These two legislations top the agenda on a hectic day that includes presentations by the Football Federation of Cambodia and the Tennis Federation of Cambodia.

“These two federations are among the best run and they share some important insights on administration and marketing with the others,” NOCC Secretary General Vath Chamroeun told the Post Monday.

In an unprecedented move, the NOCC is set to adopt the Olympic Charter with all its in-built statutes.

“We had adhoc statutes in force. Now we have completely reframed them in accordance with the recommendations of the International Olympic Committee Legal cell. This modified charter will be adopted here and then sent to the IOC for final approval,” added Vath Chamroeun.

Representatives from all 33 NOCC affiliated federations are expected to attend the assembly meeting which for the first time will be thrown open for members of the media.

“We want the media personnel to take part in all the deliberations so that they can inter-act with various federations and officials,” said the NOCC official.

Special emphasis has been placed on the Olympic Movement Autonomy and Sports Arbitration, two areas Vath Chamroeun feels are crucial to the administration.

“We want our member federations to be fully aware of the scope of these important aspects of the Olympic Charter,” he said.

The assembly is also likely to discuss the plight of dormant federations and approve a range of measures to penalise those who have been perennially inactive.

In recognition of his outstanding contribution to the development of football in the Kingdom, Football Federation of Cambodia President Sao Sokha will be honoured with the IOC Trophy, while an Honorary President of Life title will be granted to former NOCC President Mey Samedy.
