National Drama Association Launches Membership Drive

rThe National Drama Association of Trinidad and Tobago, (NDATT), is making its return after lying dormant since October 2014. In a meeting held at the Little Carib Theatre on Monday 20th March 2017, NDATT’s caretaker committee announced the immediate launch of their membership drive, and plans for an Annual General Meeting (AGM) and a General Election in May 2017.

In an official statement, Dr. Efebo Wilkinson, chairman of the NDATT caretaker committee said that membership fees have been reduced significantly to facilitate the drive. To become an NDATT member individuals may now pay $25, students $10 and groups $100.

“This is a provisional arrangement to increase membership and see us through to the AGMand resulting elections,” Dr. Wilkinson said.

The National Drama Association of Trinidad and Tobago is a Non-Profit Organization, founded in 1980 by James Lee Wah, who felt that the drama fraternity could gain from a united body to promote drama and the interest of drama groups.

After two years of inactivity, NDATT’s Trustees, Dr. Helmer Hilwig and Tony Hall, upon receiving legal advice, assembled a caretaker committee to begin the process of revitalizing the organisation.

Members of the caretaker committee are Dr. Efebo Wilkinson (Chairman), Dr. Helmer Hilwig, Trevor Jadunath (NDATT outgoing president), Tony Hall, Theresa Awai, Michael Cherrie, Penelope Spencer and Safa Niamat-Ali.
