National volleyball event
Central meetings on 25th July
Open in new windowVolleyball England yesterday (8th January) announced one of the most important dates in its calendar. Its annual general meeting (AGM), Club Conference and Annual Awards ceremony will all take place on the same day, Saturday 25th July in Loughborough.

The association invites players, club officials and volunteers from all over the country to Volleyball its Loughborough headquarters for the special events. Sue Storey, Volleyball England's relatively new Chief Executive, said: “I’m looking forward to meeting even more members of the volleyball community on 25th July this year. From what I’ve heard, the inaugural Club Conference last year was a great success and we’ll be looking to build on that – thanks to delegate feedback – for 2020. Add into the mix our AGM and Annual Awards ceremony and it makes for a jam-packed and rewarding day. I hope to see you there.”

The AGM is the formal means of providing members with details of changes over the last 12 months as well as its plans for the year ahead. It also allows members the opportunity to have their voices heard by the Executive Board. Those unable to make the meeting will be able to tune in to proceedings via a live stream.

Delegates to the club conference have a range of workshops to choose from, all designed to aid club development and the sessions will be run by specialists to build on the success of 2019’s workshops which included: website development, securing funding and marketing your club.

All present can then attend the annual awards as the sport celebrates the incredible work and special achievements of the while volleyball community. Last year volleyball recognised, among others, coach Richard Osborne, a huge figure in the sitting volleyball community who led the UK team to a silver medal at the 2018 Invictus Games. This year even more grassroots heroes across ten award categories will be crowned.
