Dear IFSA World,


Would you like to experience what being an Organising Committee (OC) for Interim Meeting is like? This is an open call to host Interim 2018-2019!


Interim is the mid-year meeting for IFSA officials. It usually lasts for a week, and takes place between late December and early February. Since most of the work that we do is spread all over the world, this is a chance for officials to be able to get together and work face-to-face. During Interim, officials explain the difficulties met during the first part of their terms, try to find solutions to them, and plan the work towards the next General Assembly.


The main objective of hosting Interim is to give Officials a working space, so it does not need to be extra elaborate. Of course extra activities are welcome (to perhaps catch a breath after all of the work), but these are optional.


If you are interested in hosting Interim, please save the following details into a pdf file and send it to [email protected] by Sunday, 5th of August at 23:59 CET:

  • A description of why you would like to host the meeting,

  • The exact location,

  • An outline of the budget (rough),

  • Potential/preferred dates


Please don’t forget to include the name of the LC or LCs that would be organising it.

In order to maximize the funding opportunity from partners, preference shall be given to Local Committees (LCs) coming from the European Region.

The proposals will be presented during the 29th General Assembly in the International Forestry Students’ Symposium in Mexico. If you are attending IFSS 2018, you will be given the chance to nominate your LC during the plenary sessions.


Looking forward to receiving your applications!


On behalf of the IFSA 7,


Jan Joseph Dida
