The VIVO Leadership Group is made up of Platinum Members, Members at other levels who are elected by peer contributors, community members, and representatives from institutions contributing at least 0.5 FTE development or other project-specific effort as approved by project leadership, reportable to the project and approved by project leadership. This group meets regularly with the Steering Group, including twice in-person – at the annual conference and at the Duraspace Membership Summit.
The Chair of the Steering Group organizes and leads the Leadership Group meetings.
Corporate Sponsors are eligible to serve on the Leadership Group as well. Leadership Group representatives are also encouraged to assist more closely with the project as they are able by serving on task forces, and subcommittees.
The Leadership Group establishes priorities and is responsible for making strategic decisions. The Steering Group will bring issues to the Leadership Group for decisions that meet the following criteria:
Annual budget allocation;
Substantial changes in allocations during the year;
Strategic product roadmap;
Strategic community direction.
