Thank you to the more than 50 representatives of the 24 Affiliates, State League Clubs, Coaches, and Referees who joined us on Sunday, 1 March for the second Annual Affiliate Development Conference.

Volleyball Victoria would like to extend our thanks to Victoria University, and in particular Loretta Konjarski for her significant support for this event, and her colleagues Alan McWilliams, Dr Bert Oraison, and Dr Michael Burke for their generous assistance and presentations.

Volleyball Victoria look forward to the continuation of this event and to growing and improving the experience for all participants.
