WHO DRIVES FICM’s WORK

The FICM’s Global Council, regional councils and Board of Directors determine the FICM’s goals, adopt the rules that govern it and ensure compliance with the FICM’s principles.

Global Council

The Global Council is FICM sovereign body. It, along with the board of directors and founding members (who also form the part of global council), will decide, define and adopt  the organization’s strategy, the organization’s budget, operating regulations and the resolutions.  It is made up of representatives from all regions around the world.

FICM meetings (Face-to-Face or over a Video Conference) will be chaired by the FICM Secretary-General. The Council will meet once a year to discuss key issues and set priorities for FICM work. The work mandated by the Council is to be carried out by the FICM Secretariat.

 

Executive Management Board

The Executive Management is the FICM senior Management Team. It supervises the implementation of the decisions made by the Global Council, as well as the smooth running of the organization. The Senior Management Team is responsible for managing FICM programs, budgets, other activities and human and financial resources of their respective functions in accordance with agreed work plans, and ensure delivery of results in line with the Organization’s strategic goals.

The Executive Management is appointed by the Global Council. The executive management will consist of Executive Director, Chief Operating Officer/Deputy Executive Director, and other directors of various regions, specialisms, practices and subjects.

Secretariat

The Secretariat is made up of a very small staff strength to support the activities of FICM, and carry out the work in response to priorities decided by the FICM Global Council.  FICM staff members also work from home from various regions for a cost effective business and knowledge process management.

 

Regional Boards

The FICM will be represented throughout the world by the Regional Boards led by the Regional Leaders. They help the organization to expand the FICM presence in their country or region and to liaise with the members in their area and the FICM Management. The regional board will consist of min 7 and max 12 board members.

There are about 100 regional chapters in the making. Any member of FICM in good standing can self nominate or can be nominated by other FICM members for the position of regional board member.  The elected Regional board members select the president/ Chair , vice-president / vice chair and other designations within the regional board.

Governance

Bylaws and Code

The bylaws and standing rules will tell you why FICM does things the way it does. You can find out everything you ever wanted to know about FICM–and probably more.

 

Strategic Priorities

The FICM strategic plan provides goals and objectives to guide the organization over the next three years. The current strategic plan was approved by the FICM in December 2017 and will expire in December 2020.

 

Standing Committees

FICM will have standing committees to help the FICM Board of Directors implement various aspects of the strategic plan and other organization business.
