Big V Annual Commission Meeting recap presents new Chair


28 November 2016, MELBOURNE - The 2016 Big V Basketball Annual Commission Meeting was held this past weekend at the Melton Country Club in Melton, Victoria.

Associations from across the league were well represented in a full day event which included providing associations an opportunity to divulge with various league commercial partners. In addition, refreshing workshops surrounding game day operations and processes regarding official documentation for allowing international players the opportunity to play in the league were discussed. 

With all associations able to put forward their input for a day, the structure for 2017 has now been finalised, including new association Wallan, new teams from various associations and a revamped finals structure.

CVIBL/VBL/Big V Chair Darryl Neal completed his final duties in his 27th year, now entering a well-earned retirement. We would like to congratulate him once again for all his efforts throughout this time.

With Neal stepping aside, brought about change at the helm of the league, as former Vice-Chairperson Brett Rolfe was elected as Chairperson following the Annual Commission Meeting by his peers. 

The Commission has a somewhat similar feel to it as we move into the future, with Rolfe, David Hughes, Renee Edgley and Rhonda Snijders all returning. They are joined by re-elected Commissioners Tim Mottin and Mick Spruhan as well as new Commissioner Debra Millist who has joined as of this week.

Millist has more than 15 years experience in quality improvement and accreditation, as well as 12 years experience as a board member in the professional and community sector. Her expertise in governance will see her heavily involved in corporate governance and risk management sectors. 

Furthermore, two more Commission members will join the aforementioned members at Basketball Victoria’s discretion at a later date.
