“It is a big honour for me to say a few words to the representatives of Europe’s Volleyball family,” the newly elected CEV President Aleksandar Boricic said. “On behalf of all elected Board members, I state that we are committed to work hard for Volleyball, and that we want to bring a new spirit and energy. We also want to bring together all member Federations into one common European Volleyball family. I invite you all to send in your remarks, comments and ideas in order to establish a good and efficient communication flow among us as we begin a new journey. I invite the NF from categories 4 and 5 to start drafting plans to support those from categories 1 and 2 and also the Small Countries Division. We need to work hard in order to obtain sponsors and commercial partners, and to better promote Volleyball, whilst liaising closer with the media and involving a lot more people in our sports. It is our ambition and goal to be able to report in two years’ time to the members of our family that our energy and drive has delivered something unprecedented to Volleyball in Europe. I thank you for your time and the trust you have put in me and my new Board of Administration. Together we must forge closer links with the FIVB and request that they acknowledge our status and role in world Volleyball and Beach Volleyball.”
