How to Get Involved
There are two main ways that members, firms or individuals can typically get involved – either by becoming members and actively utilizing the wealth of benefits, or utilizing the FICM systems, rules and procedures (or, of course, both—which provides the greatest value).
Membership supports the efforts of an organization whose vital mission is to counter litigious trend by encouraging more thoughtful dispute resolution options. Joining also provides many benefits in terms of using tools, resources and systems for preventing and effectively resolving disputes of virtually all kinds and in any part of the world.
On an ongoing basis, we provide members the tools and support to implement and maintain a highly effective end-to-end dispute resolution system and process.
The opportunity to be a thought leader and strengthen connections by joining one of FICM’s many industry-specific committees is another valuable benefit many FICM members take advantage of.
FICM Systems, Rules and Procedures
Another—or simultaneous—way to become involved with FICM is through our vast array of rules, clauses and other resources. FICM’s innovative administered process (for both domestic and international matters) offer both flexibility and control, giving parties the assistance they need,
These administered rules offer unique and critical “fixes” to many of the challenges that arbitration has at times posed to the global business community in the past- including those involving time, costs, confidentiality and concerns over arbitrator impartiality.
If a party’s arbitration clause provides for FICM Administered Arbitration Rules, or if the parties agree to submit an existing dispute to FICM administered arbitration, parties need only send their notice of arbitration along with the specified deposit and party contact and FICM will contact them to start the process. (Note: If a party’s arbitration clause provides for FICM Non-Administered
Arbitration Rules, FICM can still be of valuable assistance in selecting an arbitrator or a tribunal.)
