All activities are performed by members and for members. An activity can basically be whatever an IQMnet members desires to do. Activity must be ethical, honest, trusted and within the guidelines established by the Board. Many activities may be basically free-of-charge. Others may have fees to cover direct and administration expenses. Activity must relate directly or indirectly to IQM, and it must have a general interest to develop IQM as a discipline. Just promoting a certain product, service or company is not acceptable.
All activity must be noted on the IQMnet Website, planned by the Board and sent out to all members over the IQMnet mailing list. Members who arrange a seminar are solely responsible for the outcome. The Board will seek interested members who are willing to initiate and arrange activities to infuse new interest and increase the awareness of IQM issues.
The following are activities that can be approved by the IQMnet Board:
- Short seminars, hosted by a member, no more than 2-3 hours in length, to inform members, to discuss a certain topic, to show/demo of a product or service, to present news, results, solutions or just to spark new interest. All these short seminars are free-of-charge for IQMnet members. Light refreshments are offered by the host organization.
- Long seminars, can be one-two day events. Program can vary, to cover a technical solution, a certain business area or other defined topics. Unless hosted by a member, a long seminar will be conducted on a cost recovery basis (direct and administration) for members, and higher cost for non-members.
- Discussions, will be done by members through discussion lists and via direct mail contacts.
- Invited seminars, a number of organizations would certainly invite skilled IQMnet members to their seminars and conferences. IQMnet members should be offered some sort of benefit (rebate, etc).
- Workshops and Development Groups, where dedicated members join together to develop standards, rules, regulations, products, services or to help Government or Industry customers with analysis, advice, findings, submitting comments and recommendations on investigations, research and legislation. These are hosted activities.
- Annual IQM Event, the Board will arrange an annual event, where the IQM Innovation Award will be presented. This event will be operated by AFEI and will generate revenue to contribute to the annual administration costs of IQMnet.
