General Assembly 2020 postponed

Due to the continuously changing circumstances regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in all FIFe Member countries, we inform you that the General Assembly will not take place in May 2020. This also applies to all related activities (open meeting, seminars and theoretical exam session). The Assembly (incl. deadlines) is postponed until further notice; we are evaluating the options available. This decision was not taken lightly but the Board feels that it had to be taken in the interest of FIFe and all its Members.
Please take care of yourselves and stay well in these tumultuous times.
By order of the Board,
Annette Sjödin – President
Eric Reijers – General Secretary
