The VIVO Leadership Group is made up of Platinum Members, Members at other levels who are elected by peer contributors, 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. When a vote is called for, each organization represented on either the Steering Group or the Leadership Group has one vote on recommendations brought before the group. In case of tie votes, the Chair of the Steering Group shall cast the deciding vote.
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 Working Groups. Task Forces, and subcommittees or by attending Steering Group meetings when invited.
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;
