News from the FIVB

Anaheim, USA, September 19, 2012. The opening day of the FIVB Congress in Anaheim, saw an impressive solidarity amongst members when they approved the key FIVB finances and accounts on Wednesday at the Disneyland Hotel on Wednesday.
A record number of 262 delegates from 201 national federations, including nine proxies, all passed key accounting items on the agenda using an electronic voting system. The FIVB’s 2010-2011 accounts report, external audit report 2010-2011by Ernst & Young, internal audit report and the report on investments were all approved by a clear majority in addition to the approval of the budget for 2013-2015 and the Report of the Steering Committee on the
Development Funds.
The previous attendance record for an FIVB Congress was set in 2006 with 196 federations.
 
Other key points on the opening day of the agenda saw the Congress approve the five election scrutineers – Shanrit Wongprasert (THA) for Asia, Habu Ahmed Gumel (NGR) for Africa, Viviane Bosmans (BEL) for Europe, Julio Perez Alfaro (URU) for South America and Saul Castro Verdugo (MEX) for NORCECA – for Friday’s presidential election.
 
Earlier, mayor of the city of Anaheim Mr. Tom Tait, IOC member Mrs. Anita DeFrantz, Mr. Larry Probst, chairman of the U.S. Olympic Committee and Mr. Douglas Beal, CEO of Volleyball USA, all addressed the Congress during the opening ceremony before FIVB President Jizhong Wei welcomed the members.
 
President Wei, providing his President report for the last time in his four year tenure, told the members: “When I try to sum up all of the reforms, I am fully aware of the fact that they have all been accomplished through your support and execution. In Dubai I said that I was only a President of transition, but that I was determined to make the FIVB more transparent and democratic – to make the FIVB a real non-profit sports institution and bring it back into the Olympic family. I pledged not to seek re-election, not to be guided by personal interest and to
rely on collective leadership to avoid mistakes and wrongdoings.”
