THE annual National Toshaos Council (NTC) meeting will be held at the Guyana International Conference Centre (GICC), from August 6 -10, at which close to 200 elected Amerindian leaders, travelling from far-flung villages will participate in consultations with decision makers.
The conference, which serves as a forum to resolve issues, will see the election of toshaos and village councillors, and the presentation of nine communitiesâ land titles - four in Region 2; two each in Regions 1 and 9, and one in Region 10.
The sixth NTC Conference, which brings together elected village representatives to a session with Cabinet members, is aimed at capitalising on developments in Amerindian communities, Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr Roger Luncheon told the media yesterday.
The 2012 event, which will be held under the theme, âEstablishing Strategic Approaches of Alliances for Sustaining Amerindian Developmentâ, will see approximately 190 village leaders, toshaos and senior councillors and 13 Community Development Officers participating.
It is expected to culminate with the inking of an agreement between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the Guyana Government for the Amerindian Development Fund (ADF), Amerindian Affairs Minister, Pauline Sukhai said recently.
