The well thought out document was the primary focus of the ACF since last year.

In a news release dated March 17, 2013, the American Cricket Federation announced that the organization had published its constitution following unanimous approval by the ACF Steering Committee.  Following its adoption, the constitution replaced the draft constitution that was previously posted on its website on January 20, 2013.

According to ACF, the organization received numerous comments, suggestions and questions via email and social media.   The organization noted that all of the comments were reviewed by the ACF Constitution Committee. On March 13, 2013, ACF published a seven-page response to the comments and questions on its website. 

According to ACF’s Constitution Committee chairman Prof. Gangaram Singh, “A tremendous amount of energy was put into drafting the document as the foundation of the organization, and to make incoming members fully aware and comfortable as members of ACF.”

'The Constitution is centered on inclusivity of all cricket stakeholders with an Advisory & Judicial Committee as a watch-dog group overseeing issues of good governance of the organization,' ACF noted in a press release accompanying the announcement.

Last month, USACA announced that it had engaged a consultant to conduct an independent review of its governance practices.   That review is expected to conclude in Q4 of 2013.   USACA has not yet published a timeline for acting on any recommendations that may result from the review.
