THE Philippine Wushu Colleges & Clubs Association will hold its election for the position of Chairperson and President on Sunday, June 19.
This was announced by Chief Executive Officer Abe Lim. The site of the election has yet to be determined.
PWCCA Secretary General Sean Elijah Siy has been tasked to look for the venue of the election process.
Candidates coming from different institutions, such as those schools, clubs, and corporate establishments will be recommended by the PWCCA Executive Committee.
The election process, to be observed by the invited schools and club members and representatives from the Federation of School Sports Association of the Philippines Board of Trustees and the Philippine Inter-School Sports Association Board of Directors, calls for the selection of a president through a simple majority of the votes.
According to Lim, prominent Filipino-Chinese businessmen and patrons have been invited to witness the election exercises. They include FESSAP President Edwin C. Fabro and FESSAP Board Chairman Alvin Tai Lian.
The position of PWCCA Chairperson will be introduced. A nomination for the position is up for the challenge.
