Volleyball Association to make another elections serve


The affiliates of the St Vincent and the Grenadines Volleyball Association (SVGVA) will pull out its last constitutional spike and elect a new executive to serve the sport for the next four years.

This, when they meet this afternoon, from 5:30, at the St Vincent Grammar School to convene an extraordinary meeting, with the main agenda item, elections.

Last Saturday, there was an attempt to install the executive committee, when affiliates were summoned to the Girls’ High School to do so.

However, when the roll call was made, two teams, equalling eight of the 15 eligible votes, were present, but this did not constitute a quorum.

Chair of the intended meeting Suzanna Marie Ollivierre, employing the SVGVA’s constitution, indicated that the guide stated that 50 per cent, plus one, was needed to constitute a quorum.

Ollivierre further noted that, in accordance with Article 10 (4) of the association’s constitution, whoever attends today’s meeting, will effectively form the quorum.

The first effort at an extraordinary meeting was made last January 28 at the same Girls’ High School venue. However, after the election of Ollivierre as president, there were no other candidates to fill the other posts.

The need to elect an executive became necessary after then president Alana Mc Master relinquished the post last July, forcing the installation of an interim committee headed by Ollivierre.

Mc Master’s resignation cut short the term of the executive, which was set to be terminated this November.
