I would like to invite you all to the IVRPA Annual Members Meeting 2012, taking place online on February 29, 2012, from 9pm UTC to 10pm UTC.
The technical details on how to participate on the meeting are available here (members only post).
- Introduction of the IVRPA board of directors and the officers of IVRPA
- Short summary about 2011
The IVRPA has a new Board of Directors with two new additions and a new set of officers working hard to make 2012 another successful year for the IVRPA.
Members of the IVRPA Board of Directors 2012:
The IVRPA will need a new treasurer as of January 1st, 2012.
Sandra Mexa has been our treasurer for two years now, and has done an amazing job of setting things in order. They were busy years, with two major conferences, the Photokina show/conference, the Palmela exhibitions, and the patent challenge special account. But now understandably Sandra needs to devote more time to her own business and family.
This year three seats on the IVRPA board of directors will be up for election. Those elected will serve two year terms.
To run for one of these seats log on to the IVRPA website and post your statement of candidacy on the members forum: http://ivrpa.org/forum/members.
Statements may be posted from November 17th, 2011 (Thursday), until November 30th, 2011 (Wednesday).
Pursuing our educational goals, the IVRPA just started to release the Palmela 2011 Conference talks in video format, accessible to all on the Palmela 2011 website: http://www.palmela2011.com/info/conference/video-archive
