Oceania Boss To Visit, Resolve Issues

The Oceania Volleyball Fed­eration president Hugh Gra­ham is expected to visit the country this week.

Fiji Volleyball Federation interim president Joe Gray has confirmed they have been having talks with the international parent body through the Oceania office.

He said Graham is expected to meet FVF officials, Fiji National Sports Commission and Oceania National Olympic Committees (ONOC) president Dr Robin Mitch­ell.

“We are welcoming the president of Oceania who will be arriving soon,” he said.

“So whatever talks that we’re go­ing to have with the chairman of the Fiji National Sports Commis­sion with Dr Mitchell, we will defi­nitely advise members of the pub­lic the outcome of the meeting.”

Gray replaced Liga Gukisuva who was elected as FVF president in Au­gust 2019 and resigned within his two-year tenure. .

The federation then made a num­ber of recommendations to the commission and FASANOC on the formation of an interim committee to handle the affairs of Fiji Volley­ball before an annual general meet­ing can be called.

“First and foremost, it’s just about moving forward. We cannot actu­ally bring back or possibly fix what has happened,” Gray added.

“However, we can only learn from it, incorporate, and implement pro­cesses with good governance.

“It’s going to be an exciting year, as we hope to create a framework, confirm our constitution, hold our AGM and start having districts af­filiate and register.”
