Meetings of Directors

The Board will meet regularly every month, generally in the second week. Committees and members wishing to add new business to board meeting agendas should submit a request. The matter will be added to the agenda of the next scheduled board meeting. At the BOD discretion, members may attend meetings of directors to make a presentation. To request to attend a BOD meeting, please submit your request and any business you wish to raise, and the board will arrange for your attendance at the next scheduled meeting.

Availability of Documents

Transparency is an important issue.  We want to assure you that society documents such as Financial reports, BOD meeting minutes and policy documents are still available to you, even without a member-login enabled website. Please respect the privacy of your fellow members and refrain from sharing documents publicly.
If you are a member and wish to see any of these documents held by GVIAS, please send your requests via our contact form and we will attempt to fulfill your request within 7 days.

Membership Is Free

But Some Assembly Required

We are guided by the 10 principles of Burning Man. These principles guide our interactions with one another and the environment and have a strong ethos of participation. As such, our events and the society are entirely dependent upon community participation.

Membership isn't required to participate, but members enjoy a number of perks including access to a community of doers and dreamers.
