A few committee positions are determined by the ISVMA Constitution and have defined terms.
- Committee appointments are made by the ISVMA President unless the ISVMA Constitution has specific direction on committee composition. Committees below are active. Committees and working groups do change over time as the groups complete work or additional projects are directed by the ISVMA Board of Directors. All committees/working groups unless otherwise noted meet via video conference. Most committees meet monthly at 7 pm or 8 pm unless otherwise noted. Please sign up for what committee interests you the most. Your contact information is needed to validate your sign-up.
