The Membership Commission was established as part of the implementation of FICPI’s strategic plan and has an advisory role, being charged with studying how to increase the membership of the federation amongst eligible IP attorneys.
It reviews the quality of the services that the FICPI provides to its members and makes recommendations on how to increase participation by members in events organised by the federation.
It also makes recommendations on how to increase professional cooperation and the sharing of information between FICPI members.
The president of the Membership Commission is elected by the Executive Committee, and the presidents of the Contact and Admissions Commissions are ex officio members. Its other members are chosen by its president after consultation with the Bureau.
In 2018 the Contact Commission was merged with the Membership Commission.
