Dear NMOs

I hope this email finds you doing amazingly well. I am very glad to be opening this call for the Small Working Group on Officials’ debts from the term 2015 – 2016. The Task Force on Officials’ debts did a supreme job in reconstructing the financial report of 2015 – 2016, however, they could not finish determining individual debts.

The creation of this small working group aims to finalize the work carried out by the Task Force. They outlined several issues in financial management and decision-making that led to these unsettled debts and provided general recommendations for the Federation to keep its sustainability and ensure wise use of resources. The main goal of this small working group is to establish the individual debts from officials of this term. Achieving this will be pivotal for institutional memory and sustainability of the IFMSA. The work and report is to be elaborated by February 1st 2021. 

  • Goals of the SWG
  1. Determine the debts of Officials from the term 2015 – 2016
