FCEF maintains nine standing councils at present, each with it’s own chairman and membership from Members’ representatives interested in the specific work of the councils and drawn from the main membership body. Participation at these monthly councils is encouraged as it provides an excellent forum for networking and exchange of views and experiences. These are:

  • Mining and Quarrying Council has become the voice of the industry supporting one of the growth areas of the Fiji economy.
  • Professional and Financial Services Council provides a forum where any matters may be discussed relating to the Services sector, including the finance sector generally.
  • Retailers & Small Businesses Council is open to members with interest in the Retail sector.
  • Human Resource Council is open to all concerned with industrial relations or personnel matters or practice. It conducts regular seminars and workshops on appropriate subjects during the year, and is involved in all occupational health and safety issues.

These Councils meet on a regular monthly basis, interspersed with a quarterly Combined Councils Meeting held in venues on either the East or West of Viti Levu, where those FCEF Members who attend are provided by the respective Council Chairmen with reports of their Councils' activities. These meetings regularly feature speakers on topical subjects.
