AIVC Event – Discussion : The Future of IVC

Bob Clifford, Mike Timmis and Dave Lawrence are having an informal discussion on IVC on Tuesday Oct 20th at 6pm on Zoom. Everyone is welcome to join us.

Possible topics for speculation (and this is only speculation) might include:

How well has IVC coped with the pandemic and resulting shut downs?
What role has AIVC played in dealing with the situation.
Will we want to continue with Zoom events after the pandemic is over?
What is the persona of our membership from the past, present and future and how does this affect what we need to offer ?
What organisations could we reach out to … Cafe Sci, Skeptics, Royal Institution, Climate Campaigners, IOD, large corporates, OU and alumni groups etc. ?
Would groups be best served with just one national IVC club with centralised membership, fee collection, corporate identity, web site etc. or aIVC as a Central Service body open to many different types of groups?
How much autonomy would local group organisers need to have i.e. own bank accounts?

This is all pure speculation and is prompted by the impact of the pandemic. It in no way reflects the views of any IVC club. You are welcome to bring along any other issues that you would like discussed.
