Bylaws

The IVI Foundation has adopted formal Bylaws to govern its activities.  You download the document in either pdf format or Word format.

Below is a short synopsis of the IVI Foundation operating rules and meeting conventions:

  • Member companies can send as many representatives as desired  to committee meetings
  • At Technical Committee meetings, each company gets one vote regardless of the number of representatives
  • Member meetings are held in person, or by phone conference call
  • Currently member meetings are held 3-4 times per year, they usually last 2-3 days with multiple tracks and an agenda is published in advance. Individuals can choose to attend only the portions of the meeting that interest them
  • Attendees are charged nominal meeting fees to cover the cost of meeting space, continental breakfast and lunch
  • Other general communications are conducted via email

Operating Procedures

IVI's day-to-day activities are governed by IVI specification 1.2, Operating Procedures, available on the Specifications page. This document describes IVI Foundation rules and practices for conducting business.  All discussions and business conducted in any forum within the foundation conforms to these procedures.

In general the foundation bylaws are the ultimate authority on foundation procedures.  If they are found to conflict in any way with anything appearing in the Operating Procedures, the bylaws take precedence.

Where procedures are not defined by the Operating Procedures document or the bylaws, the IVI Foundation uses Robertís Rules of order (newly revised).

For more information on IVI operating procedures, see the Operating Procedure Committee page: Organization > Committees > Operating Procedures
