New era in FIVB history to begin in Anaheim
The FIVB World Congress is the Federation's supreme governing body and is held every two years.
With President Jizhong Wei set to stand down after four years, the 33rd edition of the Congress will usher in a new era for the organisation with the fourth President set to be elected.
Anaheim will host the latest edition of the event at the Disneyland Hotel, right at the heart of the world-famous theme park.
“The FIVB hopes all the national federations can attend this historic congress,“ President Wei said. “For this reason, the FIVB and the host national federation USA Volleyball will do all that is necessary for the smooth participation of all our members."
The candidates for the FIVB President election (term
2012-2016) are the following:
In order to guarantee fair and democratic elections an Advisory Election Committee has been introduced for the first time. Chaired by President Wei, it includes four of the five Continental Confederation Presidents plus FIVB Board member Dr Rafael Lloreda Currea in place of CSV President Dr Ary Graça, who is a presidential candidate. The Advisory Election Committee will appoint election scrutineers at the Congress.
“This will be the first democratic election in the history of the FIVB,” President Jizhong Wei said.
