Since september 2014 when FITCE agreed the new regulations concerning membership the situation in the Netherlands changed as follows.
We had within the Royal Institute of Engineers (KIVI) section Telecommunications a sub-section Fitce Netherlands. With about 70 members. Per september 2014 we have abandoned this sub-section. Per the same date all members of KIVI-Telecommunications have become effective members of FITCE, about 700 members.
The board of KIVI-Telecommunications, of which ir. Jos Gerrese is the Fitce representative, decided to give the new Fitce a trial period of 2 years, of which one year has passed.
The activities of KIVI-Telecommunications are mainly the organisation of lectures and excursions, which are usually during evenings. Since the presentations/lectures are mostly given in the Dutch language this may only be of interrest for Belgium collegues. These activities take place at least once a month.
We will start a campaign to further promote FITCE under our members so that they can enjoy the benefits of FITCE like congresses, paper presentations; information on Brussels EU activities etc.
