Legacy Ticket Program
Over the years, GVIAS Board of Directors has received inquiries from long time former community leaders who want to attend our events, but have been unable to secure a ticket. Those leaders have since “retired” or stepped away from active leadership for various reasons, including burnout, family/kids, or other life issues. Last year the Board created the Legacy Ticket Program to give back to qualifying leaders by giving them access to a ticket for purchase to attend Burn in the Forest, as a thank you for their years of dedicated service to further our community’s goals.
To be eligible, applicants require 4 years of leadership in the GVIAS community, taking into consideration:
1. GVIAS Board of Directors membership;
2. Producer of a GVIAS event;
3. Vancouver Regional Contact for Burning Man;
4. Held a leadership position at an event that doesn’t fall under the above groups, but is recognized by the GVIAS BoD as having played a significant role in the creation, curation, setup, or cleanup of GVIAS events prior to 2014.
In order to keep the application overhead to the rest of the BITF Production team at a minimum, the GVIAS Board of Directors will be responsible for determining eligibility, reviewing applications, and supporting utilizers of this program. The application period for submissions will run for a week, after the general sale has completed; applicants must first attempt to obtain a ticket through one of the prior sales.
With the help of long standing GVIAS members, we have compiled a list of qualified candidates from previous years and when in doubt we’ll work with the applicant to verify their tenure, with other long standing GVIAS members. The Board will meet as a group to discuss all applicants for that year, and seek quorum at a Board meeting, prior to the tickets being allocated. Applicants may use this program multiple times; however, preference will be given to any new applicant over someone who has been previously granted a legacy ticket. The Board will maintain a record of who has applied and received tickets under this program, however there are no guarantees of a ticket every year.
The GVIAS Board of Directors anticipates this program will be utilized a handful of times in the first few years, and will slowly expand, with more leaders becoming eligible as they cycle through.
Applications will be accepted between May 12 and May 19. Apply here:
