The IVN business office acts for the association. Its most important activities are press and public relations, political lobbying, administration, marketing and coordination among the individual committees. It organizes events, drafts advertising materials, plans trade fair exhibits, responds to inquiries from members, consumers or media and much more.
Currently Heike Hess manages IVN’s business office. She assumed this responsibility in 2006 and has expanded its range bit by bit since then.
