The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) is expected to approve the inclusion of a good governance commitment in its constitution later this month.

Seen as a major step forward in the organisation’s continued push to improve sports governance, the commitment is set to be confirmed during the TTOC's Annual General Meeting at Olympic House in Port of Spain on April 30.

It will require all affiliated member sport organisations to adhere to basic governance principles.

Professor Leigh Robinson, who facilitated the TTOC’s "Good Sport Governance" week in November of last year, will return to conduct a workshop on April 28.

Additionally, the TTOC is in discussions with the Sport Integrity Global Alliance in its effort to improve sport integrity and governance.

"The TTOC believes that success achieved by individual athletes and national or regional teams must not distract from the reality that sport governance in the Caribbean, including Trinidad and Tobago, must be modernised, significantly improved and made fit for purpose," read a statement on the TTOC’s website.

"Regional and national sport leaders and administrators must not hide behind on-the-field success to imply, suggest, validate or excuse current sport governance behaviour and practice that does not adhere to basic good governance principles."

A key aspect of the TTOC’s "Good Sport Governance" week was the consultation aimed at including sport stakeholders views in the proposed Sport Governance Code.

Professor Robinson, head of sport studies at the University of Stirling, provided expertise in sport governance.

The TTOC appointed its first Good Governance Commission in 2015.

The Commission was established by TTOC President Brian Lewis, who last year spoke of the importance of ensuring good governance of sporting organisations in Trinidad Tobago.
