Thursday, August 26th, 2004 - Practitioners in the field of Catholic Communications from several countries of the Caribbean region and Latin America, together with representatives from the international Catholic communications body, SIGNIS and the Latin American Catholic organization, OCLACC, met in Trinidad from 16th - 17th August, 2004.

Arising out of the meeting, the practitioners agreed to form a regional Communications Organization open to membership from countries that belong to the Caribbean Catholic Bishops’ Conference (AEC) as well as other countries in the region that wish to participate in this initiative.
