We aim to find board members who:
  • Possess expertise in the following areas: technology expertise, financial management, marketing, volunteer engagement, membership, programming;
  • Have an interest in filling an officer position or being apprenticed for the role of Treasurer or Secretary. The role of Treasurer is currently open and, in June Jill Greenbaum will roll off of the board and open the role of Board Secretary;
  • Have passion for the IFVP and all things Visual Practice;
  • Bring diversity in experience and perspective to our board and/or committees.
Most importantly we care deeply about the IFVP and we want to connect our members with others who feel the same. Join us to support and promote visual practitioners and our growing professional field. Be a part of something that will grow and influence the voice we make in the visual practice field. Help us in drawing the world together to think and work better through the power of visuals.



Volunteering is an extremely creative sort of a workmanship as opposed to something everybody needs. I was compelled to learn volunteering programs and returned to print letters since I can read my own print far less demanding than I can content.

It's not using any and all means a fundamental aptitude and hasn't been for most likely decades since the creation of present day composing instruments. Presently, on the off chance that we have an end of the world and need to return to utilizing  volunteer tools like papergrader in the nearest future.
