IFEM Call for Committee Participation

Dear IFEM Member,

I am writing to you regarding membership of IFEM’s Committees. IFEM membership now stands at 61 member organisations and it is the wish of the Executive to be as inclusive as possible. It has been agreed that membership of the committees will be refreshed, with the aim of improving representation of all member organisations and regions.
