Port of Spain, May 23, 2011- Three new members of the recently formed Queen’s Hall Board received their instruments of appointment today (Monday 23rd May, 2011). The new members of the Board have been chosen from varying backgrounds but each brings a unique skill set and wealth of experiences that will benefit Queen’s Hall.
Nisa Suepaul, an educator for the past 13 years has, among other activities, contributed to the national committee that formed the Ministry of the Arts and Multiculturalism. Frank Persad is an educator of 45 years who has served as a class teacher and a school principal. Richard Ramlakhansingh is a philanthropist with a special interest in developing people. He too has taught in the public school system and practised social work.
This short presentation was made in the office of The Honourable Winston Peters, Minister of the Arts and Multiculturalism.
Earlier this month (May 2, 2011) five other members received their instruments of appointment. These were Helmer Hilwig (Chairman), Mungal Patasar (Vice Chairman), Heather Henderson Gordon, Jenny Lee and Earl Knight.
These appointments mean that eight seats of the nine member board are now occupied.
In presenting the instruments of appointment, Minister Peters indicated that he anticipates the new Board will ensure accountability to protect and enhance the resources of the organization. “By holding true to their primary mandate to form policies, make crucial decisions and manage, they can preserve the strong legacy of this “Grande Dame of the performing arts”.
