THE Fiji Volleyball Federation has embarked on a new mission to improve on the governance of the sport.

The federation has engaged with Australian sports consultant Mike McLaughlin who will be assisting them in achieving this goal.

McLaughlin said the Fiji Volleyball governance project was possible through the partnership of Australian and Fiji Volleyball federations together with stakeholders such as the Australian Sports Commission.

"In essence, what we are trying to do for the two organisations, the Australian Volleyball Federation and the Fiji Volleyball Federation, is to work together on key initiatives," McLaughlin said.

"One of those initiatives is governance on the executive board has the right structure and right skills in place to run properly."

McLaughlin said he had done a review on the Fiji Volleyball constitution and policies and was pleased with the current structure.

"The project is about identifying opportunities Fiji Volleyball then decide whether they would like to take advantage of those opportunities."

Federation president Elesi Ketedromo said they were happy with this project and wanted the "sport to be governed in the most effective and efficient way".
