Committees

A profes­sional associa­tion succeeds or fails with its members.  This is true for IVN, too.That is why the general membership meeting (MV) is the central body of the associa­tion.  This general meeting takes place regularly once a year.  At this time, committee members for IVN’s central commit­tees are elected for two year terms. Their task it is to keep the associa­tion functio­ning: the execu­tive board, the guide­lines committee and the super­vi­sory committee. As of 2006, all commit­tees are actively supported by the IVN business office.

We would like to intro­duce ourselves.
