Application

To apply for a position as a VARB Member, please fill out the application form at the link below.

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
All applications must be submitted within two (2) weeks, by 2021-04-12T04:00:00Z. 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?

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

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there an age restriction?

Same as the requirement to have an IFC account: 13 years or older.

What is the activity requirement to serve as a Board Member?

Board Members are expected to submit 1-2 reviews a week, as needed, which should not take longer than 1 hour in total.

How many new Board Members will be selected?

Currently, there is no set limit. Offers will be sent out to as many top candidates as necessary.

The application form is not working. What do I do?

Just comment in this thread and we will look into is as quickly as possible.

I am a staff member / CEO at a VA/VO. Do I have to resign? Can I still become an IFVARB Member?

VA/VO staff and CEO are eligible to serve as Board Members. Please do apply if you’re interested.

"I have a question about becoming a Board Member."

This IFC thread will be open for the remainder of the application period for those interested in asking questions. You may also directly message the team @IFVARB via PM.

We kindly ask that answers are only given from IFVARB Admins, other Board Members and Leaders, and IF Staff.

We look forward to receiving your applications.

This is a great opportunity to help in the community to anyone that looks to continue to make a difference in the IFC and beyond.

I threw my name into the hat nearly 3 years ago and never looked back. You get to meet so many in the community and be a guide for everyone in between

I look forward to seeing all the applications and the always tough choice between a bunch of great candidates

I couldn’t have said it better myself, mwe.

As a fellow Board Member, I can say with absolute certainty that it’s been nothing but an honor to be apart of the team. Each potential VA/VO is unique, and it’s nothing shy of a remarkable feeling when you know that you helped them succeed!


If you feel that you have the time, ability, and dedication, I encourage you to submit an application. You never know what can happen!

I look forward to working with more members from this community. Good luck, all!

As @mwe2187 already mentioned, IFVARB is offering such a great opportunity to members who want to contribute and provide feedback to future CEOs.

Although it’s been almost 3+ years since I joined IFVARB, every new VA is a different challenge. Do NOT hesitate to apply if you are willing to become part of our team, you will not regret it!

Should you not receive the welcome message, do not worry! You will have the chance to join us in the future. 🙂

Not sure if its a given, but it doesn’t say in the regulations so I figured I would ask. Do I need an active IF subscription?

58 applications received, so far, and it is clearly going to be a tough decision to pick only a few from all the amazing applicants!

While the deadline remains as indicated in the post, we may go ahead and pick a few Board Members earlier, so keep an eye on your messages.

And if you have not applied, do not wait for too long! ;)

(If you have anyone in mind that would be great for this role, please do refer them to the original post above. Thank you!)
