    The fib International Symposium will take place from 27 to 29 April 2020 in Shanghai, China.


Statutory members are national member groups (NMGs) acting as forums for cooperation and coordination between various participants, such as governmental, scientific, technical, professional, and industrial bodies. Every NMG is represented in the General Assembly by its national delegation, formed by nominated Delegates and Deputies. Each NMG has as many Delegates and Deputies as votes. The Head of delegation is a statutory member of the technical council. Delegates and deputies are considered to be individual members of the fib, which entitles them to the benefits listed below.

NMGs can have voting rights from 1 to 5 votes. Subscription rates vary and the level chosen will determine – based on the number of votes each rate category allocates - the influence an NMG has in the General Assembly. However, all NMGs have equal status in the Technical Council since each country has one vote, irrespective of the number of delegates it has in the General Assembly.
