And The Award Goes To... Chaptership Awards 2016!

Each year, FIMRC recognizes chapters from across the globe for their outstanding efforts and contributions to our organization. The chapters of FIMRC are one of the most important aspects to fulfilling our mission, and we are incredibly grateful for everything they do.

Our chaptership program currently consists of 71 active chapters across the globe. The Chaptership Program is largely based out of the United States, but also extends to Australia and Canada. Together, the chapters play a vital role in support, awareness, recruitment, volunteers, and income to our organization and allow FIMRC to continue making a difference around the world. Three pillars represent how chapters are involved in supporting FIMRC:

-Fundraising: Adopt-a-Projects

-Volunteering: Locally & Abroad

-Promoting Local & Global Health Topics

Chapters are recognized using these three pillars as the base from which they evolve. The growth and creativity seen each year is both inspiring and influential to the success of FIMRC as a whole. We are honored to recognize these chapters’ accomplishments and appreciate their commitment to service.
