Mohammed re-elected CAZOVA president

Trinidad and Tobago's Mushtaque Mohammed has been a CAZOVA board member since 1994
Port of Spain, Trinidad, March 15, 2015 - Trinidad and Tobago’s Mushtaque Mohammed was re-elected unopposed to the position of president of the Caribbean Zonal Volleyball Association (CAZOVA) at its congress held at Cascadia Hotel & Conference Centre.

The election of officers was supervised by Dominican Republic’s Cristobal Marte Hoffiz, president of the North, Central America and Caribbean Volleyball Confederation (NORCECA) and included the participation of  Trinidad and Tobago, Aruba, Barbados, Bonaire, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Jamaica, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Suriname, Haiti, the US Virgin Islands and Turk and Caicos.

Also being re-elected to serve for another four-year term as Vice-Presidents were Warrenton Dixon (Jamaica) and Lucille Hobson (US Virgin Islands), while Haiti’s Margaret Graham, who opted not to seek another term as General Secretary, was elected as the new treasurer.

In Graham’s place, Aruba’s Filomena Daniel Curiel was voted in as the new General Secretary, with the floor members being Winston Cairo (Suriname) and Philippe Lirus (Martinique).

In addition, Trinidad and Tobago Volleyball Federation president Daymian Stewart was also re-appointed to the position of CAZOVA’s Executive Director, after being nominated by Mohammed to continue with the role.

Speaking following the confirmation on the new board, Mohammed, who has been at CAZOVA for over a decade, first thanked the member associations for having faith in him to lead for another four year term.

Looking ahead, Mohammed stressed the importance of working harder to further develop CAZOVA, as efforts are made to make it the best governing body within the NORCECA region.

However, he was quick to note that for that to be accomplished, all parties involved must work towards the same goal. “We have been branded as the least united body within NORCECA, so that is one aspect we surely need to improve on.

“Personally for me I see NORCECA president Cristobal Marte Hoffiz as someone who I try to emulate in terms of his work ethic for the sport.

“But I must admit that I don’t think I have been able to accomplish the standards I have set out for myself, and I hope that I can do much better over the next four years," ended Mohammed, who has served on the board since 1994."
