The aIVC Committee Forums are a private system provided for aIVC Committee to discuss ideas between and after aIVC meetings. These forums will hopefully give aIVC Committee Officers a chance to engage with each other to consider points raised between meetings.
The Forum system can also be used by officers to compose news articles for News Lines and encourage discussion about such articles between officers.
