PNVF president Suzara elected to new FIVB’s Empowerment Commission

Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) President Ramon “Tats” Suzara was elected secretary of the International Volleyball Federation’s (FIVB) newly-formed Volleyball Empowerment Commission for the term 2021 to 2024 following the approval of the FIVB Board of Administration.

The Volleyball Empowerment Commission aims to develop the sport through initiatives that will help professionalize the administration of national federations, provide support in the advancement of national team programs and ultimately create role models for millions of fans.

Suzara brings years of experience in volleyball administration to the newly-established commission, being a long-time member of the FIVB Development Commission and former chairman of the Asian Volleyball Confederation (AVC) Development and Marketing Committee.

He will be working with volleyball development officials, specialists, and Olympic medallists Vladimir Grbic, Mireya Luis, Emanuel Rego, Pasquale Gravina, and Xue Chen.

“It is an honor to work with distinguished volleyball personalities and I am grateful for the opportunity that the FIVB has given to the Philippines as one of the pilot beneficiaries of this new project,” Suzara said.

As we usher in a new era, we hope that we could take advantage of this chance to develop our national federation and our national teams since development is the foundation of a successful volleyball program,” he furthered.

“We hope that through the Volleyball Empowerment Commission and its projects, we will support the dreams of our athletes in playing on the world stage, and build their legacy to inspire the country’s future generations.”
