The World ParaVolley Athletes Commission will be asked about likely candidates to nominate for the International Volleyball Hall of Fame (IVHF) to the World ParaVolley Board for submission to the IVHF in 2019. Anyone from players, referees, coaches, classifiers, officials and administrators who have been retired for at least five years are eligible for nomination.
That excellent news was approved by the World ParaVolley Board of Directors during their meeting on Monday, following a presentation by ParaVolley Pan America President Joe Campbell, who was voted unanimously on to the board of the IVHF in September.
“I am honoured to be able to represent World ParaVolley and all its athletes around the world on the International Volleyball Hall of Fame Board,” said Campbell, who attending the 2018 induction earlier this month. “The IVHF is undergoing significant change as it looks to modernise and to have World ParaVolley now a part of their operations is an acknowledgement of the hard work of all our participants around the world. This is a great opportunity for the World ParaVolley athletes to be recognised for their outstanding achievements and I’m looking forward to working with the IVHF for years to come.”
