    Annually, the councils elect a Vice Chair to develop the agendas for the Discussion meetings and to moderate those sessions. Upon the election of a new Vice Chair, the previous Vice Chair becomes Chair of the council and is responsible for developing the agenda and facilitating the Council meetings.

    FSI also has three task force committees. Volunteers are recruited annually and meet by conference call.
