Open & Affordable Community Forum

In 2019, VIVA began having an annual Open & Affordable Community Forum, covering existing and emerging issues in the field.  

Previous to this, in 2017 and 2018, VIVA held an annual Open Textbook Network (OTN) Best Practices Forum. This forum was an opportunity to reconnect and share with other statewide leaders lessons learned in the course of the program.  Previous Forum agenda's can be found below, and presentations from all VIVA events can be found on the VIVA Presentations page.
