On the FIMCAP General Assembly of 2019, it was agreed that it would strengthen FIMCAP to have a financial committee. The financial committee will have the task to develop a financial policy and to provide assistance to the FIMCAP presidium on financial matters. This financial committee will be made up of maximum 5 volunteers. Meetings will be mainly via skype. In the call for financial committee members you can find more information about the profile and the expectations. Persons that are interested have to send a letter of motivation to the FIMCAP presidium before the 1st of April 2020. FIMCAP is me, FIMCAP is you, FIMCAP is us!
