The OCM organized a special briefing on 30th SEA Games Philippines 2019 for NSAs on Wednesday, 23 January 2019, at the Tan Sri Hamzah Arena, OCM Indoor Sports Complex Kuala Lumpur. The briefing was officiated by the President of OCM, Dato’ Sri Mohamad Norza Zakaria.
The OCM has invited Mr. Ramon Suzara, the Chief Operating Officer of the Philippines SEA Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC) to brief and update on the latest progress of the 30th SEA Games Philippines 2019.
The briefing by Mr. Ramon Suzara was very informative and covered various matters namely the 56 sports and 523 events, competition venues and facilities, accommodation, transportation, protocol, slogan, logo and mascot of the Games.
37 out of 40 NSAs affiliated to OCM (for the sports to be contested for the 30th SEA Games) and 3 NSAs non-affiliate to OCM attended the briefing together with the office bearers of OCM and officers from the NSC and NSI. A number of representatives from the NSAs took the opportunity to appeal to the PHISGOC through Mr. Ramon Suzara for additional events.
This is among the few new initiatives introduced by the OCM in order to provide better services to its affiliate members.
A press conference was held at the OCM Sports Museum after the special briefing.
