The Bureau will ensure strong participation of single councilors, the current and past ASSIOT and ASSOFLUID presidents and members as well as all those who wish to bring their skills to the commission table. The working groups will have a specific focus with scheduled goals to reach.
The priority of the Marketing Commission, is the extension of the membership, the description and promotion of the new association program and corporate identity, communication with associates and FEDERTEC events and trade fairs.
The Business Commission will organize working groups for statistical analysis, create FEDERTEC Buyers for increased purchasing power among associates, bring other associations into the group, establish events for the presentation of member products and services and define agreements with administrative, legal and insurance providers.
