FICIL Members gathered for the last members meeting this year that took place on 14 November. Many thanks to Evolution Gaming for providing venue.
A lot of topicalities and changes were discussed, for example changes in the FICIL Board, fresh approach on Communication Strategy and many more.
Members were informed that Graham Russell, our trusted and respected FICIL Executive Board member and Vice Chair of the Board, has stepped down from the FICIL Board due to availability reasons. Regarding these changes and in line with the previous practice Māris Gruzniņš, Commercial Director at CEMEX (his CV available here), was introduced as Graham’s replacement until the next Board member elections in February 2018.
