Panorama bands will pay Players Remittance cheques

The Central Executive of Pan Trinbago has elected to allow the leadership of participating steelbands in this year’s National Panorama Competition to pay individual Player Remittances.

 

Keith Diaz, president of the world governing steelband body says a decision taken by his executive was taken to pay a lumpsum to bands. In turn, bands will issue individual cheques.

 

Speaking at a meeting of Single Pan Band representatives held at the VIP Lounge, Grand Stand, Queen’s Park Savannah, Port-of-Spain, on Tuesday, he said the management of participating bands will be required to produce a complete and final list of the performing cast on the day of competition. Based on those numbers, bands will receive a lumpsum from which issue cheques equally.

 

At the meeting, Pan Trinbago secretary Richard Forteau made it clear the payment was not taxable and each player will receive even payments.

 

He quoted a section of the Panorama 2018 rules which stated, “Any band that fails to pay their players as per list submitted, will be held accountable for the money.”

 

Entitlement of Registration for players, as set out in the rules and regulations governing Panorama 2018, are as follows:

 

Only players who are registered with Pan Trinbago shall be authorised to perform in the competition.

 

Players shall be authorised to perform with one steelband in the division of the competition

 

A lumpsum payment will be payable to each band as players remittance to be paid to performers who have been certified as having performed at the preliminary round

 

Band leaders are required to submit the list where players signed for receiving their remittance as evidence of receipt

 

Any band that fails to pay their players as per list submitted, will be held accountable for the money

 

The amount of players counted at the preliminary round and signed off by the respective band official cannot be changed after submission.
