EVO continues to owe its success to the volunteer effort that began with the creation of the first IPMVP Committee in 1995. Since then, we have experienced tremendous growth and acceptance around the world. Our website receives close to 100,000 hits each year and more than 5000 copies of EVO publications are downloaded.
Volunteers from around the globe have devoted approximately 20,000 hours to the development of the IPMVP, and contributed volunteer services worth over $3,000,000. Individuals from Australia, Austria, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, China, the Czech Republic, France, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, the United Kingdom and the United States, have all contributed to the development of the IPMVP.
The Executive Committee is composed of EVO’s elected officers. These individuals are empowered to act on behalf of the Board of Directos when the Board is not in session. The Executive Committee also works with EVO staff to provide guidance in between Board meetings.
The IPMVP Committee, a voluntary effort originally formed in 1995, serves to help promote and maintain the IPMVP Core Concepts and supporting reference materials on an ongoing basis. These volunteers from around the world devote their time and exchange ideas to further the development of the IPMVP, and continuously update the library of standardized protocols, references and tools to represent Measurement & Verification best-practices.
The M&V Training Committee (TC) oversees a broad portfolio of responsibilities including development of training strategies for all levels of training as well as instructor recruitment, mentoring and certification. The TC relies heavily on the Extended Training Committee (ETC), a group of instructors from every region of the world, that help to localize our training as needed.
The Extended Training Committee is composed of M&V professionals who make recommendations to and assist the Training Committee to improve EVO’s training procedures and materials. They are selected based upon their expertise as well as well as from a geographic perspective so that EVO’s trainings can be adapted for different local environments.
