Kevin Twohig

I have been in leadership roles with USA Volleyball for over 35 years and look forward to helping the ERVA to continue to grow thru quality events, education, and new members. I am a former ERVA Commissioner and was previously the Treasurer and an Adult player rep to the Board. I understand the Assistant Commissioner requirements as I have been in this role since 2011. I was on the USAV Board and the USA Volleyball Executive Committee for a number of years. While on the USAV Board I was Chair of the Corporate E&E Committee where I developed a good understanding of due process. I have adjudicated several Ethics and Eligibility issues both in the Region and Nationally. I have a passion for the sport and have been involved all of my adult life. I would like to continue to be engaged at the Regional level and to have the opportunity to continue to serve the sport that I love and the great people who have chosen to be involved.

Margie Ray

Hello, My Name is Margie Ray. I am running for the office of Treasurer (ERVA). 

I am presently the ERVA treasurer. I wish to continue in this position. I am familiar with the accounting books and reporting practices for the ERVA.  I work closely with the Office Manager and an independent accountant to help ensure the ERVA is working in the latest “best business practices.”  Besides being the present Treasurer, I teach Mathematics at Spokane Community College, and I am the “Representative Payee” for a disable sibling which gives me continued accounting practice outside the region.

Thank you very much for considering me for this position.

 

3. Adult Program Director
  • Substantial experience coaching, organizing, or administering youth, Junior, and or/adult teams, clubs, and/or events.

Rick Wright

I was made aware that the Adult Representative position was open on the Board of Directors for Evergreen Region and I would love to take it and continue help the sport grow in our area.

My life is beach volleyball. I have been playing beach since I was 16 years old, going on almost 30 years. I actually played in the 1st sand tournament they had at Brown's Park on the old 4 courts, when they were new, back in the summer 1991. I got into coaching club about 6-7 years and now wish I would have got into coaching 20 years ago. I love helping people, and especially when it has to do with volleyball. I was born and raised in Spokane and know the majority of people in the volleyball community. I think I would be able to accomplish and fulfill all duties necessary for this position and would feel very grateful if the Region would consider me to occupy it. Thanks for consideration.
