FIO Council Members
FIO’s Consortium consists of 30 institutions. Each institution has a sitting FIO Council Member, responsible for attending meetings and voting on budgetary and operational items. The Council includes executive committees, each with a specific focus (for example- the Shiptime Committee) and members are voted in and rotate off committee assignments.
