become an fmc influencer

Member Influencers are point people who decide topics for presentations, schedule speakers and more. The work they do influences FMC programming overall.

By Definition: Capacity Building

Capacity building is the process by which individuals and organizations obtain, improve, and retain the skills, knowledge, tools and other resources needed to do their jobs competently, thereby enabling individuals and organizations to perform at a greater capacity, such as by larger scale, larger audience and/or larger impact.(Wikipedia)

It’s all about leveling out, then leveling up.

How This Works

FMC Influencers determine topics and schedule online events. As a member, you may participate in any and all forums and may earn professional development credits from FMC (this varies by event).

Upcoming events will be announced in FMC’s weekly newsletter – be sure to subscribe and whitelist the email to ensure you and your employees receive it.
