On Monday 24th August, 2015, Archery Guyana was officially launched at the Carifesta Grounds at a modest but historic Event hosted by World Archery Americas in collaboration with the Guyana Sport Shooting Federation as it then was, and the Ministry of Education, Department of Culture, Youth and Sport as it then was. Guyana was at that time officially a permanent member of the World Archery and ready to pave the way forward for this Olympic sport to be added to Guyana’s sport portfolio.

On 20th March, 2017, Archery Guyana was then lawfully registered by the Registrar of Business Names and duly issued with Certificate of Registration No. 151718, Laws of Guyana.

Archery Guyana Inc. was then taken a step further by being duly incorporated on the 4th day of May, 2018 as a body corporate without share capital under the Companies Act 1991, Laws of Guyana as Company No. 9290.

On the Inaugural Annual General Meeting of Archery Guyana Inc. held on September 11, the Elections for the new Board of Directors were conducted by the duly elected Returning Officer, Attorney-at-Law and Honorary Counsul to Japan, Mr. Kashir Khan, who officially released the following information after the democratic and transparent electoral process in the presence of an independent observer from the National Sports Commission, Mr. Seon Erskine.
