The Israel IVS Forum is an association of senior property professionals and stakeholders in Israel. Our aims are to advance adoption of International Valuation Standards (IVS) in Israel and to disseminate international best practice within the Israeli profession. We hold regular webinars and publish international best practice papers in both English and Hebrew.

Governance
The President of the IVS Forum is Haim Mesilaty, Chairman of the Israel Real Estate Appraisers Association (IREAA). The President is elected every two years by the General Assembly, which consists of all Israel IVS Forum members.

The highest administrative body is the Governing Council, consisting of members elected every three years by the General Assembly. The Governing Council elects the Chair of the Governing Council.

The IVS Forum is advised by an Advisory Board whose membership includes senior property professionals from a wide variety of disciplines. The Advisory Board operates independently of the IVS Forum. It provides high level advice to the Governing Council on professional and policy matters. The Advisory Board sets up working groups that deal with specific policy areas.
