The FEMS Council meets annually. It consists of the Delegates of all Member Societies and the officers of the Board of Directors. Members of the Council who are unable to attend may appoint a proxy/deputy. This should be done by using the relevant form (see below). All members of the Council wishing to attend the meeting should complete a registration form (see below) and make their own travel and accommodation arrangements. FEMS Council Participation Grants are available to support the attendance of Delegates of Full Member Societies who are unable to provide financial support themselves. Member Societies may bid to host the Council meeting in their own country. The Board of Directors will elect one venue from amongst those bids.
Documents from these meetings are available at the FEMS Delegates pages (restricted access) or can be retained by FEMS Delegates from our office.
Deciding and embarking on a career, working towards and taking the next professional step, hunting THAT job has high stakes and can be daunting. One could think that it has become less daunting given the days when jobs were for life are gone. However, the job hunt often takes place at generally stressful times: we may be working towards a qualification/that paper that needs adding to the CV, or time for hunting must be found on top of a demanding job.
