From October 3-7, 2022, IAVE members are invited to vote for or against the adoption of the newly revised IAVE Bylaws. With over a decade since they have last been updated, the Board of Directors determined that it was time for a refreshed set of directives to guide our work. The proposed changes to the current Bylaws more accurately reflect IAVE’s mission and work, as well as possessing a sharper alignment with present-day practices used in the sector. These changes will also provide an organizational structure that will allow us to strengthen our organization. The revised Bylaws can be downloaded here.
