Bahamian civil society elects new slate of officers – Eye Witness News
NASSAU, BAHAMAS – Outgoing President Dr. Anthony Hamilton has been re-elected as head of the Bahamas Civil Society (CSB) with a new slate of officers following recent elections.
The new team of officers is responsible for overseeing the implementation of several initiatives while moving the organization forward over the next two years.
Hamilton said the diverse and experienced leadership team is at an advanced stage of developing a sustainable holistic strategy to unite the country through immediate, short-term, medium-term and long-term actions.
The CSB press release read, “The Bahamas faces many socio-economic challenges that require a united front between the public/private sectors and leaders committed to preserving the family structure. Seeing weakened families and communities, a justice system seen as a vector of injustice, a crippled economy resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic, the global climate change crisis that spawned category five hurricanes like Dorian and a alarming increase in crime, The Bahamas Civil Society (CSB) is engaging in dialogue with key stakeholders to restore and strengthen the tranquility and growth of our nation,” reads a press release.
“CSB is a non-partisan, non-governmental organization that focuses on improving the well-being of social people, economic, spiritual and mental well-being of individuals in our country. This society seeks to advocate daily for good governance and policies that seek to initiate and effect change. Since its incorporation in 2005, CBS has worked to influence national policies through its various advocacy programs while fostering greater collaboration with government and the private sector.
