IFVARB Member Application Form ⟶

We ask that you provide accurate and honest information. We ask that you take the application seriously and provide answers to the best of your ability. The first step for our team in reviewing the application is reviewing the time that is put into each IFVARB Member Application.

Please remember that this is not a race and to take time on your application. We will review each individually, and very likely not in the order that they come in.

⤥ Deadline ⤦

2022-05-25T05:00:00Z

Εικόνα1 All applications must be submitted within one (1) week. Once the applications close, each application will be discussed among the VARB staff to determine which users would be the best fit for the VARB. Each application will receive a response back via the IFC.

⤥ What does a Board Member do? ⤦

Εικόνα1 An IFVARB Member is a key member of our Virtual Airline / Organization community. They are mentors for our VA/VO staff, guides for decisions surrounding the IFVARB and the community, and an essential part of our review process for newly applying VA/VOs in the certification process.

Εικόνα1 During the certification process, Board Members provide reviews of the application in several phases until the VA/VO meets the Leader’s or Admin’s approval for certification.

Εικόνα1 On the IFVARB Discord Server, Board Members are able to provide assistance and guidance to other staff, help with questions on the IFC, and more.

Additional Information

A user’s previous postings on IFC and its extensions will be examined as well as the application provided. VARB staff will also contact the IFC moderators to determine the amount of previous moderation required in the past for the member who submitted the application in question.

This change is based on community and internal feedback. We encourage everyone to continue sharing their thoughts!

Old Policy NEW POLICY
Staff members who resign from a VA/VO are barred from holding any other VA/VO staff position for 90 days after their resignation. Staff members who resign from a VA/VO are barred from holding any other VA/VO staff position for 30 days after their resignation.

A staff member can be eligible for a staff cool down waiver under the following circumstance: The staff member has served for TWO months or more and wishes to move to another staff position at another VA.
A staff member can be eligible for a staff cool down waiver under the following circumstance: The staff member has served for SIX months or more and wishes to start their own Virtual Airline/Organization. A staff member can be eligible for a staff cool down waiver under the following circumstance: The staff member has served for THREE months or more and wishes to start their own Virtual Airline/Organization.
