USA Cricket appoints Nominating and Governance Committee

©ICC

In another significant milestone for cricket in the United States and following a unanimous recommendation of the Sustainable Foundation Advisory Group (SFAG), a Nominating and Governance Committee (NGC) was today announced. The four-person committee will be primarily responsible for identifying and recommending three independent directors of the USA Cricket Board.

The committee comprises experts with a diverse range of backgrounds from both within and outside cricket and are universally recognized leaders who collectively bring together significant knowledge and independence to this critically important role. 

The members of the Nominating and Governance Committee are:

Amy Perko – CEO, Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics with more than 20 years of leadership experience inside the U.S. sports world 

Rohan Chandran – a former Hong Kong U19 captain with 25 years of cricket administration experience and a founding Executive team member of Cricinfo

Keith Aaron – an engineering executive with 30 years of cricket administration experience in New York and a former captain of the Guyanese U19 team

David Richardson – ICC Chief Executive

The three independent directors that the NGC is charged with finding - at least one of whom must be female - should not have held any cricket governance or administration roles for at least the past three years. 

This composition will ensure a balance of constituent and non-constituent Directors and will enable USA Cricket to recruit skill sets and backgrounds to complement those of the seven other constituent directors who will be elected by the registered individuals, clubs and leagues in due course.

The NGC will also lead the election process of the inaugural Board of Directors of USA Cricket and will be vetting all candidates for compliance against the criteria set out in the USA Cricket Constitution.

Dr. Vince Adams, a SFAG Member, commented on the appointment of the NGC. “The appointment of ICC Chief Executive, Mr. Richardson represents the ICC’s continued commitment to the growth of cricket in the United States – something the SFAG has been eager to maintain. His experience along with the skills and expertise of Mr. Aaron, Ms. Perko and Mr. Chandran ensure the NGC will play an extremely important role in identifying the right Independent Directors to work alongside the elected Members to take USA Cricket forward for many years to come.”

CC Chief Executive, David Richardson said: “This is another positive step forward in USA Cricket’s journey under the guidance of the Sustainable Foundation Advisory Group on the pathway set out under the USA Cricket Constitution that was approved in December 2017.”

To be eligible to vote in the initial election that will select the Board, prospective Members must join USA Cricket by 11:59pm ET, 24 April 2018. Initial Membership is free and will come with many benefits that will increase over time, and includes; voting for the Board of Directors, insurance coverage for both individuals and clubs, zonal programs, CricClubs competition management platform access, educational resources, best practice sharing and more.
