Prior to the meeting, AVC Secretary General Mr Kiattipong Rachatagriengkai gave a welcome address, citing that following signs of improving global COVID-19 situation, everything is going well and he hopes high that AVC will run successful competitions this year.

“On behalf of AVC President Madam Rita Subowo, I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all of you for devotedly attending this meeting. I would like to emphasise that all AVC Technical Committees are very important. We tried to develop our management in AVC. In the past few years, the COVID-19 pandemic caused us several problems in managing and organising competitions. However, the COVID-19 situation is now improving and I strongly believe that all AVC activities will run smoothly from now on,” Mr Kiattipong was quoted as saying.

“In addition, there are many AVC competitions, both volleyball and beach volleyball events, to be organised this year and hopefully, they will be held successfully. Your point of views shared in the meeting are valuable source of information and knowledge for sustainable development of AVC. I wish the meeting a great success,” he added.

After that, Dr Rueangsak expressed his delight to resume his office after WADA removed National Anti-Doping Organisation of Thailand from World Anti-Doping Code non-compliant list early last year.

“I’m glad to be back to resume my duty after the WADA sanction was lifted last October. After that, we didn’t have many AVC and FIVB events as it was the League period. This year, the competitions at national level will resume in May. I hope everything will be okay and our Members will then join working with AVC and FIVB if requested,” he said.

Later, the Agenda of the 2023 AVC Medical Committee Meeting and the Minutes of the previous meeting on zoom on February 22, 2022 had been approved.
