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 program-specific effort as approved by program leadership, reportable to the program and approved by program leadership.  In the past, this group has met regularly twice in-person – at the annual conference and at the LYRASIS Membership Summit.

RSP Partners are eligible to serve on the Leadership Group as well. 

Leadership Group representatives are also expected to assist more closely with the project as they are able by serving on task forces, interest groups, and subcommittees.

The Leadership Group establishes priorities and is responsible for making strategic decisions in these areas

    • Annual budget allocation;

    • Substantial changes in allocations during the year;

    • Strategic product roadmap;

    • Strategic community direction.
