Did you realise that as an FIA member you are able to participate in our highly influential Councils and Working Groups?

The FIA is structured into 7 councils, each covering a different sector of the industry.  Each council oversees various working groups, special interest groups and committees.  Over the years FIA councils have successfully influenced a range of govt legislation and British Standards and have provided a wealth of guidance documents for the industry.  If you want to be at the heart of shaping the Fire Industry then this is the place you need to be.  

Councils:

FIA Councils consist of 15 elected individuals from member companies.  Elections are held each year at the AGM in November and anyone from within a member company can put themselves forward as a candidate.  During the year, it may be the case for various reasons that some of the councils have vacancies available.  When that is the case, anyone from any member can apply to be accepted by the council to fill the vacancy.  Please visit our website to see the full information on each council and also the below table showing which council have vacancies currently and how to apply:
