IFFA Board implement new fee structure
The IFFA Board now implements the new membership fee structure 2018. The IFFA chair Peter deMarsh has sent a letter to all IFFA members explaining the new fee structure and asking for the members feedback.
|IFFA Chair Peter deMarsh writes to members|
The new 2018 IFFA membership fee structure was decided by the IFFA annual meeting in Brussels in March 2018. The new structure considers the large differences between IFFA member organisations. Some members have a large economic capability while others have a small economic capability. This goes for the ordinary members as well as the associate members.
Members are asked to determine what fee level fits best with their current operating budget and are invited to discuss the best choice with members of the IFFA Board. The members are asked to report back to the board as soon as possible.
In the letter to the members, Peter deMarsh underlines the three considerations the organisation tries to balance
Equal participation of members in IFFA’s affairs
Big differences in the size of operating budgets among existing and potential members
Many opportunities to do more work with more revenue
The 2018 policy adopted by the annual meeting is:
member organisations with:
- small operating budgets/economic capability: 250 Euros
- medium-sized budgets/economic capability: 500 Euros
- large budgets/economic capability organizations: 1.500 Euros
Fees for Associate members are also divided into two classes:
- Small budgets: 250 Euros
- Large budgets: 500 Euros
