Ramon “Tats” Suzara was elected to a fresh two-year term as President of the Philippine National Volleyball Federation (PNVF) during the national sports association’s board meeting at The Vault at the Bonifacio Global City.

“I would like to thank the PNVF board for their trust and confidence on me leading the federation. Rest assured, I will work toward making volleyball better and our national athletes stronger in the next two years,” said Suzara, who also thanked the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) and the Philippine Sports Commission for supporting the PNVF.

Senator Alan Peter Cayetano was elevated as the PNVF’s chairman emeritus, while Dr Arnel Hajan of Isabela City (Basilan) was named chairman.

“Thank you for the small part that I have been given in the PNVF,” Cayetano said in a brief speech after the elections. “Let’s look forward again to 2023 and further.”
