Each year the Institute opens a call for supporting members to give the opportunity to interested organisations to join the VPHi board and have a leading role in driving the Institute activities.
Supporting members appoint a representative to seat in the Board of Directors, which is formally the main governing body of the Institute. They are selected through a public call, which officially opens today and will last till the beginning of September.
The Institute makes available a maximum of 12 supporting memberships, a number that shall guarantee the effectiveness of our governance model. In case the number of received requests will be higher, the General Assembly will decide upon it through a formal vote.
For this year the fee is set at €5.000. Being the membership with the highest level of involvement, supporting members have the duty (and the benefit connected) to sustain a major part of the financial viability of the Institute.
