Application Process Open for Conduct Committee Lead

The GVIAS Conduct Committee is comprised of 2-3 leads, who oversee 6-10 members; all are vetted by the community to take on the task of reviewing incidents that violate our community Code of Conduct:

Conduct Leads organize monthly committee meetings, handle incoming reports and oversee all assessments. With the Committee, they discuss newly reported issues, ongoing cases, come to a group opinion on anonymized reports and prepare high level summaries for the Board of Directors. Leads will also do assessment work and offer facilitated conversations when needed.  

Please note: anyone who works on the committee will be expected to maintain strict confidentiality and silence regarding matters brought before the committee including, but not limited to, private communications and final disposition of outcomes. You will not be able to discuss anything involving the details of a case with anyone not on the committee or GVIAS Board of Directors, and will be required to sign a statement of Confidentiality pursuant to this understanding.
