An in-person VUG meeting will occur annually. Additional web-based meetings will be held throughout the year as capabilities of VERA evolve and/or as requested by VUG members.
VUG members are expected to provide their time and travel expenses at no cost to the VERA project. The project can pay travel and meeting expenses for members who have a key role at a specific meeting and who indicate that their attendance would otherwise be jeopardized. From time to time, the VUG might identify VUG activities which incur unusual costs to members, or which require external resources. In such cases, the Industry Council Chairman can recommend that costs associated with be paid by the project. The decision for funding will be made by the VERA Director.
