Tel Aviv, Israel, November 21, 2016. The General Assembly of the Israel Volleyball Association (IVA) held on Sunday elected a new President, Mr Eviatar Dotan, as well as the 19 members of the Board of Administration, which now includes six females. Dotan, 48, is married with three children; he lives in a kibbutz and since 2013 has been the CEO of the Israel Cattle Breeders Association.
The new chairman of the Israel Volleyball Association has been closely linked to the country’s Volleyball family for many years. After his election, Mr Dotan said: “I am very excited and happy to start my work as IVA President. I was involved in many of the major projects that our Federation actioned in the past and I feel privileged with the opportunity to further grow Volleyball in our country. I am confident that if we continue to do the right things, we will further develop Volleyball and raise its profile to even an even higher level. I would like to thank outgoing President Dr Arie Locker for his time and work as IVA President. Volleyball and Beach Volleyball have considerably grown under his leadership and I truly admire his work and the legacy he has left behind.”
Mr Dotan continued: “The General Assembly elected the 19 members of the IVA Board of Administration, which now includes six women. This is testament to our spirit of harmony and cohesion and this choice also sends out a very strong message to all of us, members of the Israeli Volleyball family, and especially to those in charge of its management. I would like to thank all delegates who have put their trust in me.”
