After several months work, the IVV website has a completely new and fresh look. It is also up to date with the latest changes received from the Office. The web address and the email address for the Office have not changed, but the structure and internal page names of the website have. If you have bookmarked any internal pages from the previous website, they will no longer work. Please find the corresponding page on the new website and bookmark it instead. Please note that ALL information on both National and Direct members is shown on a single page for each now. The separate page ‘Search for IVV Events’ is now incorporated on the particular member’s pages. Other new features are indicated here:
