The Council would like to thank Team Maxumise for their work and dedication towards the FIJI USA Business Council for the past 12 years. “Thank you so much and it was a great pleasure indeed.”

Council membership form

The council has a new member­ship form and they have requested members to complete the form and email it back to them. You will re­ceive the 2019 subscription invoice as soon as you submit your com­pleted form.

The completed forms are required from current/renewing members and potential new members.

The council has added request for information on the form, this was designed to gather as much information as possible about your business to enable them to link you with your area of interest through the Council communications and activities.

The council wants to understand you to enable them serve your needs.

In-addition, your representative(s) contact is important to them, they want to make sure your representa­tives are well informed and invited to the Council activities.

Therefore, they need to update their database.

Miscommunication in the past

There may have been miscommu­nication in the past as they were informed that some members rep­resentatives may have not been receiving information, invites, etc. So, they want to make sure they don’t leave anyone behind. The council have made the filling process of its form user friendly, simply complete it electronically (pdf) without printing and email it to them when done. Their aim is to make this process more effective and easy as they understand you are busy.

Please feel free to share the mem­bership form with anyone you know who may be interested in joining their community.

The council have placed the mem­bership form on the social media channels as well.

Other positive changes will be forthcoming to enhance the com­munication lines of the Council with its members. Stay tuned.
