MIAMI BEACH – As a central component of its continued transformation, CONCACAF announced Tuesday the creation of new committees, following an Executive Committee meeting at the confederation’s office in this South Florida city.
Plans were unveiled for the appointment of three committees: Integrity, Audit & Compliance and Ethics. Each of these bodies will play a role in CONCACAF’s reform, while establishing the road map for its future.
“The creation of these committees is the next logical step in the transformation of CONCACAF, demonstrating that we are committed to transparency and reform,” CONCACAF’s new president Jeffrey Webb said in a statement. “We are working meticulously with professionals possessing competence and integrity to fill positions on each committee.
“The Integrity Committee will be completely independent and will be free to carry out their respective mandates.”
Webb was elected at the CONCACAF Congress in Budapest, Hungary on May 23.
The names of committee chairs and members will be revealed over the coming weeks.
The Executive Committee also approved Panama City, Panama, as the location for the next Extraordinary Congress that will be held later this year.
As previously announced at last month’s Congress, the Central America meeting will devote special attention to governance, audit and revision of CONCACAF’s statutes to ensure that they are in compliance with FIFA requirements.
“The congress in Panama will be a decisive event in the confederation’s history,” Webb said.
