Collaborative work spaces and meeting minutes are located on the shared drive and available to members at all times.
Members may opt out of newsletter communications at any time by writing to the AIS Coordinator, Executive Committee Members or Board of Directors.
Publications by AIS members can express individual views but do not necessarily represent the views of the association at large.
Official AIS media channels are managed by the Outreach Committee and are approved through their means.
AIS members are encouraged to share information that pertains to the AIS mission and is relevant to the AIS goals as well as news and events of their own collaborations, research, and developments on the AIS media channels.
The standard boilerplate communication for members to include in documents and shared materials is:
“xx is a member of the Art Identification Standard. AIS is a not-profit standardisation organisation, bringing together art stakeholders around a common mission: to bring to the art world a standardised and unique Object Identifier that can be permanently assigned to a given artwork, in an international, inclusive, innovative and sustainable way.
