Bangkok, Thailand, March 17, 2017 – Asian Volleyball Confederation has geared up its preparation for holding annual technical committee meetings at Dusit Princess Srinakarin Hotel here, with AVC President Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser and AVC Executive Vice President Mr Essa Hamza jointly chairing an ad hoc meeting among AVC staffs to thoroughly check their readiness for the Saturday’s meetings.
The AVC Financial Committee and the AVC Beach Volleyball Committee had recently held their meetingd, leaving the remaining six technical committees to follow suit on March 18. They comprise the AVC Referees Committee, the AVC Sports Events Council, the AVC Development & Marketing Committee, the AVC Medical Committee, the AVC Coaches Committee and the AVC Press Committee, with all staffs in charge at the AVC Headquarters in Bangkok joining the meeting on Friday.
AVC Secretary-General Mr Shanrit Wongprasert reported to Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser and Mr Essa Hamza about the current working situations at the AVC Headquarters, citing that all national federations have yet launched any complaints to AVC. Furthermore, technical committee members have also been satisfied by the running of the AVC Headquarters in Bangkok.
Shanrit added that at first, it was likely that the AVC Beach Volleyball Office would be set up in Sydney, Australia. However, Mr Craig Carracher, president of the AVC Beach Volleyball Committee said later that he was satisfied with the AVC Headquarters remaining robust for more years to come and with kind cooperation from AVC Beach Volleyball Committee member and international referee delegate Mr Kritsada Panaseri, Mr Carracher decided not to set up the AVC Beach Volleyball Office in Sydney.
Moreover, Shanrit has also informed Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser and Mr Essa Hamza about the internal problems of the Volleyball Federation of India, Volleyball Association of Maldives and the Philippine Volleyball Federation, which have yet to be solved effectively. However, Shanrit confirmed that AVC will coordinate only with the federation sanctioned by the IOC in the country where the federation has belonged.
Dr Saleh A. Bin Nasser said that he, to be joined by FIVB and AVC Honorary Life President Mr Wei Jizhong, and Madam Rita Subowo, AVC Executive Vice President, will discuss the matter in a special meeting later on, especially the Philippines’ case.
The AVC President also thanked all staffs at the AVC Headquarters, expressing his satisfaction over the working situations at the office. He has requested all staffs working at the AVC Headquarters to continue working as a team and help each other when confronting any problem.
Mr Essa Hamsa also said that he is pleased with all staffs working at the AVC Headquarters. He admitted that after the AVC Headquarters has been shifted from Japan to China and to Bangkok, Thailand eventually, the working situations at the head office are very satisfactory. It was a big change and challenge and everyone in AVC and the Asian volleyball family is very satisfied with what all staffs at the AVC Headquarters have done so far.
However, Mr Essa Hamza has left some remarks for the ad hoc meeting among the staffs at the AVC Headquarters and they would become guidelines for all staffs to learn and improve their working situations at the head office for more future successes.
