SWVA Meeting Moves Online to beat Storm Dennis

The SWVA Executive meeting went online for the first time in 50 years this weekend as storm Dennis swept across the region. It was a fairly late call to make the change from our normal Weston Super Mare meeting venue and a few of our regular members were unable to join us for various reasons. We were also joined by Sue Storey, Volleyball England’s new CEO and Gill Harrison (Technical & Talent Coordinator) who were able to give us an update on VE business and the ongoing work with the developing Volleyball Futures program.

The conference call facility gave us the opportunity to open up this part of the meeting to SW members who would not normally attend, we therefore invited all SW Coaches to join us and to speak directly with Sue and Gill on VE’s issues and the ongoing coaching program.

Initial feedback is that the conference call worked, and the correct option given the weather situation. The option to open up part of the meeting to SW members was seen as a positive move and one we should look at again. It was proposed that we should look at doing this again for the 2021 February meeting, this will be discussed at the next meeting.
