FIVB Executive Committee meets ahead of Board

LAUSANNE, Switzerland, March 21, 2022 - The FIVB Executive Committee, led by FIVB President Dr Ary S Graça F°, today met in a hybrid in person and virtual format to discuss the importance of the FIVB, the Continental Confederations and National Federations taking a united approach to enhance the development of the sport worldwide. 

The meeting was held ahead of the Board of Administration meeting set to take place on Monday afternoon and Tuesday, and provided an opportunity for the Executive Committee to discuss a number of key topics. These included the importance of good governance and transparency, the continued need for unity to help volleyball and beach volleyball grow worldwide and the importance of innovation.  

Opening the meeting, the FIVB President said: 

“We need to make sure we are moving in one direction. If we are on a boat, but everyone is rowing in different directions, we will only go in circles and never move anywhere. We must remember that, together, we are worth much more than the sum of our parts. So we should take advantage of this and work together to ensure great results that benefit our beloved sport.” 

The FIVB Board of administration meeting is set to be held on the afternoon of 21 March and throughout 22 March 2022.
