The new board members will officially begin work on 1 January 2011 for two

--What Does the Board Do?

The board of directors (BOD) works primarily on the communications and
projects related to running IVRPA.

Most of the work of the BOD is done on line via email, chats, Skype Video
conference and telephone.

--Why Should I Serve on the BOD?

IVRPA is an international organization of VR professionals

The membership is made up of professionals, educators, enthusiasts and
others --- all producing great images!

If you volunteer to serve on the BOD then you will have a chance to lead
the IVRPA as we move forward to promote the work of IVRPA members and
educate the public.

The time commitment is at least a few hours a week, currently we have
weekly meetings online and it can expand significantly depending on your
level of involvement or current projects. Coming next year IVRPA will
continue to improve the website, hold a Panorama Photography conference
in Europe and we have many other projects in the pipeline.

--Two year terms

With the change of our bylaws last year we introduced alternating two year
terms to ensure the continuity of our association. Last year 3 of the elected BoD
members, with the highest votes were chosen for 2 years, the remaining 4
for 1 year. That is why there are this year 4 seats up for election.

3 of 4 current BoD members will be re-electable.

On behalf of the IVRPA board of directors 2010,

Matthias Taugwalder
IVRPA president
