ON OCTOBER 27TH 2013, THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF PAN TRINBAGO WAS HELD AND NO FINANCIAL REPORTS WERE PRESENTED. STEELBANDS WERE ADVISED THEN, THAT THE REASON FOR THESE STATEMENTS NOT PRESENTED, WERE THAT TOBAGO AND THE EASTERN REGIONS DID NOT SUBMIT THEIR RESPECTIVE REPORTS ON TIME.

THE TOBAGO REGION TREASURER STATED THAT THEIR REPORT WAS SUBMITTED, HOWEVER THERE WERE QUESTIONS ABOUT A BUSINESS VENTURE OPERATED BY A PREVIOUS EXECUTIVE BODY.

THE EASTERN REGION CHAIRMAN CONFIRMED THAT THEY SUBMITTED THEIR FINANCIAL REPORT LATE. THE REPORT WAS PRESENTED ON JUNE 30TH 2013, THREE MONTHS AFTER THE DEADLINE.

THE EXECUTIVE OF PAN TRINBAGO PROMISED TO HAVE THEIR FINANCIAL REPORTS READY FOR PRESENTATION TO THE EXECUTIVE THREE WEEKS AFTER THE OCTOBER 27TH AGM. THIS HAS NOT HAPPENED TO DATE.

IT IS OVER 50 DAYS (7 WEEKS) SINCE THE OCTOBER 27th AGM. WE TOOK NOTE ON PAGE 26 OF THE TREASURER’S REPORT, IN THE FINAL LINES, “I AM THEREFORE PLEASED TO LAY ON THE TABLE THE AUDITED ACCOUNTS FOR THE PERIOD UNDER REVIEW.” TO DATE, THERE ARE NO AUDITED OR UNAUDITED ACCOUNTS PRESENTED TO THE BANDS FOR PANORAMA 2013!

IN 2004, THE SOUTHERN REGION OF PAN TRINBAGO COULD NOT SUBMIT ITS FINANCIAL REPORT BEFORE THE DEADLINE DATE. THE CENTRAL EXECUTIVE OF PAN TRINBAGO STILL PRESENTED FINANCIAL AND AUDITED REPORTS AT THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING, A PRECEDENCE HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED.

IN THE ABSENCE OF THE 2013 FINANCIAL REPORT, WE, THE PANPLAYERS, ARE LEFT WONDERING AS TO THE FINANCIAL POSITION OF OUR ORGANIZATION IN WHICH ALL OUR PANMEN AND PANWOMEN HAVE A VESTED INTEREST.

WITH THE PANORAMA SEASON COMMENCING ON JANUARY 30TH 2014, PAN TRINBAGO SHOULD MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO MEET WITH THEIR AUDITORS AS A MATTER OF URGENY PUBLIC IMPORTANCE, SINCE PANORAMA IS FUNDED BY THE GOVERNMENT AND PEOPLE OF TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO. IT WOULD ALSO BE IN THEIR BEST INTEREST ALSO TO ENSURE THAT THE 2013 FINANCIAL STATEMENT IS SUBMITTED TO ALL STEELBANDS BEFORE DECEMBER 31, 2013.

IN THE ABSENCE OF A FINANCIAL REPORT FROM PAN TRINBAGO, WE, THE NEW VISIONARIES PAN FOUNDATION, HAVE ATTACHED A FINANCIAL STATEMENT REFLECTING THE POSSIBLE INCOME WHICH SHOULD HAVE BEEN GENERATED THROUGH THE 2013 PANORAMA EVENTS, WHICH ALSO INCLUDES THE GREENS.

FINALLY WE NOTE THAT PRIZE MONIES FOR THE JUST CONCLUDED 2013 PAN IS BEAUTIFUL COMPETITION HAVE NOT YET BEEN PAID TO SUCCESSFUL BANDS. WE WERE ADVISED THAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS NOT ASSISTED, AND NO POSITIVE RESPONSES WERE RECEIVED FROM 42 BUSINESSES WRITTEN TO BY PAN TRINBAGO.

This is a very interesting post. I predict that an Extra-Ordinary Meeting will soon be called by HE President Diaz of Pan Trinbago for two specific purposes; (1) to present outstanding Financial Reports from the 2013 AGM and (2) to deal with all matters surrounding Panorama 2014..Short of that, one can continue to live in hope as to how all things shall unfold. Constitutionally speaking, such memorandum circularized within the organization, one would hope that when that time is afforded that the strong views which have been expressed here, maybe then properly ventilated at that forum.

On behalf of Power Stars Steel Orchestra (PSSO),

Happy Holidays to Tripolians

Management - PSSO

The money EVAPORATE, I guess we could blame it on global warming. lol  I hope that someone is going to have these people personal finances investigated. When money gone most times it don't return.

Cecil: When I was a child my mother IMPLORED me not to follow bad company. And I listened well until I came to this forum and people like you and Trevor and Bertel and Beverly start leading me astray and make me follow bad company. Allyuh encourage meh to attack Diaz and support the VISIONIARIES -- and I eh even ah VISIONARY.

That is following bad company.

Lord have mercy!!!

 

 

Claude,

That's called doing the right thing.

THIS IS A DESPICABLE  AND UNACCEPTABLE STATE OF AFFAIRS.I WISH TO RECOMMEND THAT ''THE NEW VISIONARIES PAN FOUNDATION'' SEEK AN ''IMMEDIATE'' INTERVIEW WITH TV6,SO THE COUNTRY CAN BE INFORMED.THERE IS TOO MUCH MALAISE AND LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY IN THIS COUNTRY.''LESS TALK MORE ACTION''.NOWWWWWWWWWWWWW.

Helen Phillip,

I agree.

Helen,

I second that motion!

Here is a suggestion to the New Visionaries status report. It will be much easier to read the articles if they are written in lower case as opposed to the UPPER case. The moderator on  this forum should remind us all to make it easier on the eyes for reading, and also to remove the notion that you are constantly SHOUTING. :)

Please and Thank you.

PS: No offence intended.

God Bless yuh Mike!!! And why throw out number after number after number when you could summarize in three lines and everybody could relate and get the point. I almost did that for them but when I looked down the road -- it eh make no sense.

Claude,

You guys are not easy, " I almost did that for them but when I looked down the road -- it eh make no sense."

New Visionaries have their work cut out for them, Internet Communication 101. I made a sign of the cross, called on the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, but then I thought of our own "Ghost" on this forum.

I'm sure he can offer them some guidance on how to communicate effectively. We are all growing and learning. This is a worthy cause.

Shouting, Talking, Crying, Laughing, does it matter. Are we all blindly shooting the messenger here while the message is blowing away in the wind?

GOOD GOD! These people are asking for our help here on this Forum, and the only thing we recognize is which Case (upper or lower) their cries are written in?

Where is the good in our hearts to see that these people are risking EVERYTHING they own to save our beloved National Instrument from Highway Robbers? Come on folks, we are all Pan lovers here and we could do much, much better than this! They are fighting the battles while we are the spectators. Dont criticize their efforts.
