The FIVB World Congress, which is the Federation’s supreme governing body, is held every two years. The 2010 edition, which is not an elective Congress, will be preceded by a one day workshop on September 8 for all category I and II national federations, providing the opportunity for federations to discuss issues with FIVB and Confederation officials while also providing a platform for the FIVB to update the federations on key developments within the organization.
The FIVB Executive Committee also confirmed that the FIVB will cover the travel expenses for the first delegate of each category I and category II national federation, as well as, the accommodation of all participating national federations first delegates.
“The FIVB World Congress is the most efficient platform where the entire Volleyball family can congregate and exchange ideas and be fully updated on the happenings in the world of Volleyball,” FIVB President Mr Jizhong Wei said. “The money coming from sport will be put back to sport, this is an Olympic rule which FIVB follows for the benefit of our players and Volleyball participants.”
The venue for the 2010 FIVB World Congress will be the Rome Marriott Park Hotel. Invitations to register for the Congress will be sent before the end of the year.
Coverage of the FIVB Development Workshop and the 2010 FIVB Congress will be streamed live on the FIVB website
