Nabeel Ahmed, First Vice President of USACA, has submitted his resignation to the President, the Ondrive Update blog reported yesterday.
John Aaron, the USACA Executive Secretary, told DreamCricket.com that he had not yet received such a notification. Reasons for his resignation could not be confirmed by DreamCricket.com.
Nabeel Ahmed was the only person other than President Dainty to be relected when elections for USACA board were held in March of 2008. He won the election by the widest margin among all candidates (20 to 11).
On April 26, 2008, when the Commercial Opportunities Committee was established, Ahmed was one of the four members along with Don Lockerbie (CEO), John Thickett (Treasurer) and Gladstone Dainty (President). That committee is charged with evaluating commercial opportunities presented to USACA and make recommendations to the board. The resignation, if it is true, comes just days after John Thickett told CricInfo that USACA was negotiating a 'eight figure' commercial deal and was "getting pretty close to finalizing it all."
Nabeel Ahmed, who is the CEO of home based healthcare provider First Choice Home Health, Inc., is a generous man by all accounts. He is known to have awarded cash prizes to top performers at the national level and also donated money to several cricket leagues.
Besides his involvement with Great Lakes Cricket Conference, Ahmed is known for his efforts in promoting cricket in Pakistan where he is the patron of Lahore's Col Fateh Sher Memorial Cricket tournament, organized in the memory of his father. 'Nabeel Ahmed has done a lot for promoting club cricket (in Pakistan) and also helped in creating facilities,' one cricket organizer told a Pakistan based newspaper last year. "His contribution for the cause of club cricket will always be remembered," the organizer added.
