FICS has become a significant international organisation with a world-wide membership. FICS Statutes reflect an organisational structure which is more reflective of a contemporary commercial organisation where the strategic and operational responsibilities are separated. The FICS Statutes are aligned with its 2019 to 2023 Strategic Plan developed in April 2018. This was designed specifically to enable the organisation to achieve its growth aspirations and to position FICS as the “thought leader in sports chiropractic”.
Separation of strategy from the day to day management and administration of the operational and tactical affairs, and the monitoring of the health of the organisation, are important to ensure good governance and that the decision-making process is reflective of organisational needs. The Statutes provide FICS with the ability to be led by a strong strategically focussed Executive Council made up of regional members, and a strong operationally focussed Executive Management Team selected against an organisational skills matrix will ensure real-time delivery of the activities required to achieve the organisation’s strategic objectives.
It establishes a succession planning capability whereby individuals will be rewarded for their valuable service in the Commissions and Executive Management Team with the ability to sit at the Executive Council level. This will enable FICS to start to groom the future leaders of the organisation.
