World ParaVolley Commission Chairperson Positions Renewal

2018 marks the beginning of the next 4 years of appointment for all of the Chairs of the various Commissions by the Board.

The Board has decided to openly invite Expressions of Interest (EOIs) from the wider World ParaVolley community to take up the positions of Commission Chairs.  There is no formal application form and we are expecting applicants to write a single page indicating their background and experience and how they see the respective Commission developing in the next 4 years.

The Commissions are:

  • Anti-Doping Commission
  • Beach Volleyball Commission
  • Classification Commission
  • Coaching Commission
  • Development Commission
  • Marketing Commission
  • Medical Research Commission
  • Referee Commission
  • Sport Research Commission
  • Technical Commission


To see the Job Descriptions for each of the Chairperson positions, please click HERE.

The EOIs will be evaluated by the relevant Director and a recommendation made to the whole World ParaVolley Board for approval as is required by the Constitution, article 13.2.

Once the Chairs have been decided and approved, the Commission membership will be assessed too, with the involvement of the Chair, noting that for some Commissions, the membership is set by Regulations (e.g. the Zone Sport Directors are members of the Technical Commission).

The Job Descriptions for each Commission Chair are available on the World ParaVolley website for all to consider.

EOIs should be addressed to before 31 January 2018.
