In line with the National Association of Sign Language Interpreters, Ghana constitution, NASLIG operates by a decentralized system. The NASLIG constitution recommends that its functions be carried out from the National, Regional and District levels.
Article VII of the constitution focuses on the formation and operations (functions) of the Regional Coordinating Committee – RCC.
Section 1 identifies the following as the membership of the RCC:
- Regional Coordinator
- Vice Regional Coordinator
- Vice Secretary
- Financial Secretary/Treasurer
Sections 2 to 9 identifies other definitions of the RCC. These include functions of the members (section2), number to serve on the committee (section 3), qualification (section 4), terms of office (section 5), nominations (section 6), election of committee members (section 7), compensation and indemnification (section 8), and disqualification of committee members (section 9).
There are currently six (6) Regional Coordinating Committees functioning from the regions. They comprise the following.
|1||Eastern Region||Francis Kweku Essel|
|2||Western Region||Isaac Abakah|
|3||Western North||Atta Nyamekye|
|4||Bono/Ahafo/Bono East||Mortey Benjamin Kofi|
|5||Northern Region||Atawulai Fuseini|
|6||Volta/Oti Region||Foster Elikem|
NASLIG members are encouraged to contact their regional RCCs for assistance and guidance regarding interpreting activities within their regions. It is the hope of the national executive that through the RCCS, NASLIG would reach its twin goals of membership mobilization and capacity-building for SLIs in Ghana.
