The Bermuda Taxi Owners Association has appointed a new executive committee following the resignation of the group’s president and treasurer.
A spokeswoman for the organization said in a press release that a special general meeting was called this month to resume the annual general meeting, which reportedly ended “in chaos” on August 6.
The spokesperson said the meeting resumed both at St Paul’s Christian Education Center and on Zoom, with members voting on a new executive committee.
Dennis Furbert was elected president of the association, with David Dumont as vice-president.
Shari-Lynn Pringle was elected secretary, Michee Barclay treasurer and Nigel Richardson in charge of public relations.
The spokesperson said: “The newly elected management team would like to express their thanks to the members of the BTOA and the previous one for their support and efforts during these two difficult years for the industry and the whole. ‘Isle.”
Mr. Furbert added: “We hope to meet quickly with Lawrence Scott, the Minister of Transport, and our other industry partners to ensure that we can continue to provide the services our customers, both residents and visitors, deserve. despite unprecedented and uncertain challenges that we have all faced recently. “
A participant in the August meeting said The Royal Gazette that when reading the Treasurer’s Report for the period between 2018 and June 2021, a motion was made that printed copies of the report be presented to members within 21 days.
After the motion was unanimously passed – that members be allowed to have hard copies to read the official report as presented – David Frost, the president of the association, reportedly resigned and left the meeting.
