The 7th Annual General Meeting of the Eastern Caribbean Collective Organisation for Music Rights (ECCO) Inc. was held Saturday 10th September 2016 at the CSA Centre Castries, St. Lucia. Whilst the meeting was held in St. Lucia, members in Antigua & Barbuda, Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts & Nevis and St. Vincent & the Grenadines were able to participate in the meeting by online conferencing technology.

ECCO reported to members the achievement of a 35% growth in licensing revenue, while keeping a cap on expenditure, which enabled the organisation to increase revenue available to those members whose music was used during the accounting period 1st January to 31st December 2015, by 86%.

The record turnout for an ECCO AGM participated in a frank, open and sometimes hard hitting but welcomed discussion on the year in review, members expectations and the expansion plan for the organisation.

Following elections supervised by ECCO’s Attorney, Thaddeus Antoine of TM Antoine Partners, the new Board of ECCO are as follows: -
Dr. Anderson Reynolds (St. Lucia)
Christine Charlemagne (St. Lucia)
Claudia Edward-Ladner (St. Lucia)
Daryl Bobb (Dominica)
Hugh James (St. Lucia)
Jemmont Anthony (St, Vincent & the Grenadines)
Martin James (St. Lucia)
Shala Emmanuel (St. Lucia)
Shayne Ross (St. Lucia)
Wayne Green (Grenada)

ECCO said a fond farewell to both its Chairman, Mr. McCarthy Marie and Vice Chairman, Llewellyn Gill who both served the Board for three consecutive 2-year periods and in accordance to the by-laws could not seek re-election for a 4th consecutive term.

Officers of the Board, including its Chairman will be elected at a subsequent meeting of the Board where it will also appoint Directors for Antigua & Barbuda and an interim Director for St. Kitts & Nevis.
