Notice: Belize Basketball Federation Executive Committee Elections on 8 th Sept.

The Belize Basketball Federation (BBF) is an independent association composed of national and regional federations and associations which are involved in and are responsible for all aspects of the sport of basketball in the country of Belize. Such associations and local federations are deemed members of the BBF, Belize’s national federation.

The BBF is the sole competent authority for men’s and women’s basketball throughout Belize and is recognised as such by the Federation Internationale de Basketball (FIBA).

In accordance with the approved General Statutes and Internal Regulations (2008) of the BBF, article 17.4, the elected Executive body of the BBF shall serve a term of office of four years after which the elected members of the Executive Committee shall automatically retire from office and elections become due. As a consequence, the due date for elections of new officers will be 8th September, 2012 or 30 days from the date of this notice. The venue for these elections will be the offices of the Belize Olympic Association, Belize City commencing at 10am.

Nominations, together with written acceptance by the nominees, for the positions of the Executive Committee of the BBF, shall be submitted by member/District Associations or other interested parties in writing and shall be received by the Secretary General within twenty-nine (29) days after the dispatch of this notice. Nominations should be sent by email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by 3pm, 7 th September. The Secretary General shall then circularise all nominations to BBF members on same date.

The Executive Committee consists of the following roles: President, Secretary General, two Vice Presidents, Treasurer/Finance Officer, three Executive Officers and 3 additional members appointed by the Regional/District Associations. The BBF is a non-profit organisation and all Executive roles are therefore served on a fully voluntary basis.

Full slates of candidates to fill all positions may be submitted but nominations for individual roles will be accepted. Where insufficient nominations have been received or a circularised nomination is withdrawn, the position(s) for which nominations shall have been received shall fill from the floor of the meeting in which elections are being held.
