FINAT has a unique structure which covers the full spectrum of the industry. FINAT is directed by a tightly-defined structure of Board and Committees.
JOIN THE COMMITTEES
The active FINAT committees (Marketing, Technical, Membership, Recycling and YMC) are looking for candidates with new, fresh ideas, who are able to dedicate a few hours per quarter of their time to the development of new and enhancement of current activities.
If you are competent in congress planning, PR, communication, social media or label industry trends, the Marketing Committee would welcome your candidacy. If you are more apt in technical, regulatory or recycling affairs, you could apply for a seat in the Technical Committee or Recycling Group. Or, perhaps you know how to persuade companies to see the benefits of a FINAT membership. Then the Membership Committee would be pleased to have you on board. On the other hand, if you are under the age of 40, a first generation owner, founder or a second or third generation manager and working in the labelling sector, then the YMC would be a good platform for you to start with.
Do you think you have what it takes? Do you want to make a difference? Apply for one of the committtees. Click here for the application form. A short description of the various committees can be found below.
