IFL: A Big Reform for a Big Mission.
Page d'Accueil/Homepage. English Page. Page Française. Working Papers. Les Travaux.
According to an article in the last COURIER IFL must
be reformed. I agree. The difference between membership as individual member and
branch’s or group’s member is, for me, very big. I’m member in IFL since
1992, and member in other international organisations. I think that IFL is so «
decentralised ». I think ifs very important to have a general and worldwide
listing of members, individual and members in branches or groups. To achieve
this goal, computer system would be very interesting. Personal computer have
standard system as DOS or BASIC, and we must have a standard listing with help
of members who are interested by computer or professional in this subject.
To centralise the name of members with their
interests would be a very important piece of information to ad . Just activities
of IFL and to improve the « PEN FRIENDSHIP SERVICE » for example. In fact,
this system is adopted by NEUROMEDIA International (association). And, even if
the « PEN FRIENDSHW SERVICE » is free at IFL we must become as good as IPF
International Pen Friendship which is charged service.
Concerning sending it’s very important to consider
the cost of mail service. For example the cost of mail service in Germany is
very high. Its lower in Great Britain. So we have best time to send COURIER or
IC NEWS from GB.
The law is very important too. I think that many
people in the world are interested to found a branch of EFL. So, if it's
possible, the translation of IFL's constitution in their language would be very
appreciated. Adaptation of this constitution with law of their country is a
difficult work with the participation of embassies, but it's a work and a very
necessary work, of lawyer.
I think that IFL needs all volunteers in all
International non for profit making organisations as
Y.I.W.0 or SCOUT succeed, so IFL is able to become better known and able to
