Panam SportsThe Panam Sports Executive Committee concludes a productive meeting in Lima, Peru with an eye towards the future.

Revitalized marketing, communications and development strategies will enable Panam Sports to increase and enhance its presence in the global sports market.

LIMA, PERU (March 15, 2018) — The first Panam Sports Executive Committee Meeting of 2018 concluded March 14 in Lima, Peru with a renewed focus towards establishing the organization as more than a regional leader of sport.

The path that will lead Panam Sports to an elevated position in the Olympic Movement and the world market was outlined in great detail to the executives throughout the two-day meeting in the host city of the 2019 Pan American Games.

Panam Sports President Neven Ilic led the Executive Committee through a thorough budget analysis that indicates a strong and positive financial outlook for the organization. Included in the budget is the more than $1 million in relief efforts that Panam Sports and the International Olympic Committee are delivering through 2017-2018 to National Olympic Committees in the region that were struck by natural disasters.

The commitment to supporting the 41 National Olympic Committees of the Americas is more evident than ever, with an increased emphasis being placed on developing their sports infrastructure, facilities and sport performance programs.
