With Excellence in Governance at the forefront of its Mission and Integrity one of its Key Values, World ParaVolley has published the reports from its past four General Assemblies online on the World ParaVolley website.
World ParaVolley, the sole International Federation responsible for the governance, planning and management of all forms of volleyball for persons with a physical impairment, is a non-profit organization and works closely with National Paralympic Committees, National (Volleyball) Federations and private companies to promote ParaVolley competitions and development activities on a global level.
As declared in its Constitution, World ParaVolley is governed at the highest level by the General Assembly, which is convened every two years. The General Assembly consists of all World ParaVolley member nations who are in good standing with the Federation.
The most recent General Assembly took place in the birth place of Sitting Volleyball – Arnhem, the Netherlands – in July this year on the eve of the 2018 World ParaVolley Sitting Volleyball World Championships. The major decision to come out of the 2018 General Assembly was the approval of the motion to add an elected female and male athlete representative to the World ParaVolley Board of Directors, representing a key step towards gender equality within the World ParaVolley organisation.
