VA President Craig Carracher recognised in Queen’s Birthday Honours
Volleyball Australia (VA) would like to congratulate VA’s President, Craig Carracher AM, on his recognition in this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours, as a Member of the Order of Australia (AM).
As president of VA since 2013 and a member of the AOC Executive, Mr Carracher has been recognised for his exceptional service and commitment to volleyball in Australia.
“Craig’s passion and lifetime commitment to volleyball has seen the sport continue to grow through participation pathways, high performance programs and the opportunity to host world-class volleyball events across multiple states in Australia,” said VA CEO Andrew Dee.
“On behalf of VA, I congratulate Craig on this well-deserved honour, recognising his invaluable contributions to develop our sport.”
President of the AOC, Ian Chesterman, also congratulated Mr Carracher.
“Craig has passionately focused on growing the sport of volleyball through participation pathways that link the game’s grassroots to the potential for Olympic representation. A silver medal in Tokyo in the women’s beach volley was a highlight,” Mr Chesterman said.
“Recently re-elected to the AOC Executive, Craig continues to work diligently to pursue the AOC’s objectives as we prepare for Paris 2024, Milano-Cortina 2026 and beyond – with Brisbane 2032 the light on the hill for us all.
“It’s wonderful that Craig has been recognised for his efforts,” Mr Chesterman concluded.
