The Auditors Report includes the auditors report from 2012, official accounts (income statement 2012) and balance sheet 31 December 2012.

Appendix to item 14:

Motion: That the General Assembly

  • adopts the audited accounts for 2012 and
  • adopts budgets for 2013–2016

15. SUBSCRIPTION RATES FOR 2015

The General Assembly has to set levels of fees for member associations two years in advance of the year in which they become payable. Fees are payable in respect of each individual member up to a maximum of 5,500 members. Membership fee structure was changed in 2009. Membership fees have been discussed as part of the finance report, appendix to item 14.

The 2012 General Assembly approved membership fees for 2014 as follows:

  Per capita fee Minimum fee Maximum fee
2014 4.48 € per member up to a maximum of 5,500 members
Member associations from countries listed by the World Bank as low-income economies or lower-middle-income economies shall pay 2.24 € member up to a maximum of 5,500 members.
20 members or 50 € (whichever is greater) 5,500 members (24,640 €)

See the World Bank lists of the low-income economies and the lower-middle-income economies.

The Council proposes to the General Assembly to keep the membership fees for member associations for 2015 at the same level as endorsed by the General Assembly in 2012 for 2014. In the draft budgets for 2013-2016 the membership fees are planned to be kept at the 2013 level for all membership categories for 2013-2015.

In addition, Council has looked again at the maximum fee, which is currently set at 5,500 members. Council considered holding this to a fixed monetary amount, or adjusting the number of members, and have concluded that it would be appropriate to fix it at 5,500 members or €25,000, whichever is the lower – this would be the maximum that any Member Association would pay to be a member of FIG. The current maximum is 5,500 members x €4.48 = €24,640; the cap of €25,000 would apply once the subscription rate has increased by 1.5% or more.

Motion: That the General Assembly adopts following membership fees payable by member associations in 2015:

  Per capita fee Minimum fee Maximum fee
2015 4.48 € per member up to a maximum of 5,500 members
Member associations from countries listed by the World Bank as low-income economies or lower-middle-income economies shall pay 2.24 € member up to a maximum of 5,500 members.
20 members or 50 € (whichever is greater) 5,500 members (24,640 €)

Decision:

16. DECISION OF THE VENUE FOR FIG WORKING WEEK 2017

The FIG Working Weeks are organised by FIG together with the local member association. FIG and the local member association will together have full responsibility of the arrangements. The Council has to ensure that all candidates are aware about the role of FIG and split of responsibilities for organising the Working Week. FIG Council has lately worked on defining the split of responsibilities between the local association and FIG, and has therefore decided to postpone the bid for 2017 by one year to allow time to evaluate the current concept.
