Pan American Sports Committee for the Deaf (COPANDES) was founded December 8, 1971 in Buenos Aires Argentina. The organization was inactive from 1975 to 1994 when CISS Vice-President John M. Lovett and Secretariat Donalda Ammons met with representatives from 4 countries in Caracas, Venezuela and re-established the organization under the name of Pan American Sports for the Deaf (PANAMDES).  More information can be found:
