Wednesday, February 09, 2005 - World Cup Saint Lucia met with Rushmans on Monday, 7 February 2005, to discuss issues pertaining to event management, security, accreditation, media management, and the volunteer programme for the 2007 ICC Cricket World Cup.

Rushmans, an international company with significant experience and expertise in the hosting of major events, has been contracted by ICC Cricket World Cup WI 2007 Inc. to advise and assist with Event Management and Security issues for the 2007 Cricket World Cup.

During the 4-hour meeting, which was held at the Beausejour Cricket Ground, the members of Saint Lucia’s Local Organising Committee and Rushmans shared perspectives on the management of the security arrangements for the tournament. It was agreed that as far as is practicable, the two, Pakistan versus West Indies One Day Internationals to be held in Saint Lucia this year, would be used to introduce some of the new security procedures.

The operation of the volunteer programme also received significant attention during the meeting. The various levels of volunteers and the time frame for the recruitment and training of these volunteers were discussed. The Rushmans team was impressed with the arrangements for volunteers already used in Saint Lucia during Saint Lucia Jazz, and with the proposals to utilize the Youth Apprenticeship Program and the National Skills Development Centre as vehicles to train new volunteers.

The meeting also discussed the recommended staffing levels for the event, and was apprised of the progress that has been made in Saint Lucia, in the recruitment of permanent staff for World Cup Saint Lucia Inc.

The very successful meeting concluded with a tour of the new office for World Cup Saint Lucia Inc., which is expected to be commissioned on 1st March, 2005.
