FIAT-IFTA AND EFFS BOARDS MEET AT SALON FUNÉRAIRE – PARIS 2019
On Thursday, November 21, 2019 the Board of EFFS and Members held the 2019 General Assembly at the Salon Funéraire in Le Bourget near Paris. The same day the Board of FIAT-IFTA convened in Le Bourget Airport Hotel. Main item of the meeting: Revision of the FIAT-IFTA Constitution, Bylaws and the Annexes. All documents will be submitted to the FIAT-IFTA membership at the I.C.D. meeting and the General Assembly on the 16th International Convention, Yokohama, 22 to 24 June 2020.
One of the substantial reforms of the FIAT-IFTA Federation will be the upgrading of the FIAT-IFTA Departments.
All Departments will now be governed by a Board with the authority to exercise certain implementing powers laid down in the Constitution and pertaining Annexes. In Yokohama, the FIAT-IFTA Membership will inaugurate: Board of the FIAT-IFTA Funeral Heritage Committee; the Board of the FIAT-IFTA International Cremation Network and the Board of the FIAT-IFTA Funeral Celebrants Platform. Furthermore, a new, elaborate Code of Ethics will be part of the legal body of the FIAT-IFTA Federation. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of EFFS, members of both federations joined to visit the crematorium at the cemetery of Père Lachaise. This crematorium opened in 1889 and is owned by the municipality of the City of Paris. All gathered in the evening for a Gala dinner at the Cabaret Paradis Latin.
