The proceedings were ably chaired by President of the Nevis Amateur Basketball Association (NABA), Mrs. Wanda France who after the invocation, delivered opening remarks, during which she paid tribute to the man in whose honour the league is named, the late Hon. Malcolm Guishard, former area representative. She then recognized the presence of the daughter of the late parliamentarian, Ms. Shinelle Guishard.
