Media Release: Volleyball BC announces the departure of Densmore as CEO

VANCOUVER, May 31, 2019 – The Volleyball BC Board of Directors announces the resignation of Chris Densmore from the role of CEO, as he moves on to an opportunity in the private sector.

Densmore’s dedication to the sport of volleyball spans over 25 years.

He also coached Club Volleyball for two decades, Malaspina/VIU for 12 years, Team BC’s Indoor and Beach programs for six summers, and UBC for a year.
