FIRST members meet in groups or in plenary to discuss specific issues related to FIRST. Thus, we have Board Meetings, Members Annual General Meetings, Working Groups & Committess Meetings, etc. These meetings can be held face-to-face during FIRST events or by teleconference, periodically or on demand.

FIRST meetings are restricted to FIRST members and invited guests only.
