Global Members Committee


The Global Members Committee assesses the needs of non-U.S. based members and recommends ways to increase participation in ARVO to the ARVO Board of Trustees.


  • Collects and interprets statistical information relating to the involvement of non-U.S. based members in ARVO.
  • Encourages non-U.S. based members to more fully participate in the governance and programs of the Association.
  • Sponsors Annual Meeting workshops on relevant topics.
  • Reports to the Board of Trustees at its regular meetings.


The committee meets during the ARVO Annual Meeting and conducts business via ARVOConnect, by email and if needed by conference call during the year.
