THE Zimbabwe Volleyball Association (ZVA) has moved the 2014 annual general meeting (AGM) set for Saturday from Mashonaland Central province to Harare.
ZVA secretary-general Shingisai Mapondera said the AGM was supposed to be held in Mashonaland Central, but the province later on said they were not ready to host the event.
Mapondera said ZVA is mandated to have an AGM every year where they would be focusing on key issues such as the calendar, summary of the previous year and the budgets for the season.
“The AGM was slated for Mashonaland Central Province, but it has since been moved to Harare following the province’s request that they are not prepared to host the event. In this case, we are going to have our AGM on Saturday in Harare where we will be discussing the past season and the calendar for this year. We will also be having provinces presenting their budgets. There is no vacancy that needs to be filled, so there will be no elections because we normally conduct our elections after four years,” Mapondera said.
He said the Zimbabwean volleyball fraternity should celebrate the success that ZVA brought last year.
Mapondera said it was an achievement to manage sending teams to all competitions although the association was beset with serious financial challenges.
“I think when we talk of 2013, we have something to celebrate as the year had a lot of positive achievements in our volleyball. We managed to send our teams in all major tournaments regardless of having financial constraints. Also to be noticed is our progress in the Great Zimbabwe talent identification programme where we recruited a number of talented young volleyball players,” he said.
The Zimbabwe Volleyball Under-19 team won the national team of the year in the Zimbabwe National Sports Awards accolade following their 2013 fine display that saw them qualifying for the World Championships in Poland.
