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.

I highly encourage everyone who loves VAs and VOs to apply! We are excited to see all the new applicants and encourage those who have applied in the past to do so again!

Here are some of my personal tips for your application:

  1. Let your enthusiasm shine through! Those who have been most successful as board members are those who are genuinely excited to work and volunteer time to help new VAs get approved. If you really enjoy it, it doesn’t feel like work.
  2. Take your time. Write something you feel accurately portrays you to us. One sentence might be quick to write but definitely doesn’t reflect well.
  3. Bribes and gifts can be forwarded to my PM, thank you in advance!

Is there anyway to know if your application has been successfully sent? I sent mine but I haven’t received any notification or email regarding it so I’m wondering if my application went through.

Great to see applications open again!

Unfortunately, no notifications at the time of submission. If the page didn’t give you any errors then you’re good. But this gave me an idea, so I’m gonna look into adding an option to check the status of your application.

Where can i read some more about IFARB roles, their responsibilities?
And also, to apply, i need to know IFARB roles very good yes? So where can i find the whole list to check my knowledge?

Make that 23!

On another note, I’m really happy that you guys are opening up for applications again. I really love working with VAs! While I have a decently jaded past on the IFC and just in the community in general, I still really love this community and really want to get involved with everyone here.

Thanks for giving us this opportunity Thomas, it’s really appreciated!

Hello, @kit_v_kapushone!

If you are not satisfied with the information on the main post, you can directly message one of us (IFVARB Admins, Leaders or Board Members) and we will elaborate more there.

What you say is 100% correct, you should not apply if you didn’t understand what you will face I once we bring you on board.

Including mine! I’ve been looking forward to these for a while now.

13 days to goand we have already received more than 40 applications!

IMPORTANT: Because we already have 36 applications for the BM (Board Member) position and 5 for the EL (Event Leader) position, it does not mean you should hurry up to submit yours! As stated many times above, we will start reviewing applications in a random order and most likely not the order the applications came in.

Having said that, don’t be afraid to submit yours… even if the applications number is higher at the time you are ready to apply. Use all of the time given (2 weeks) and fill up the form once you feel ready. Should any issues / concerns / questions arise during that time, please message us at @IFVARB and we will get back to you as soon as possible!

When the applications close, is that when you announce who you’ve picked?

1 Like

No. The closure simply means that we are not accepting any new applications. The new BM & EL Team will be announced in the upcoming days.

A new FAQ is a WIP at the moment. In 2 days, you’ll be able to answer all of these questions on your own! 😉
