The changing roles, relationships and financial aspects of Core PCOs, PCOs and Associations Edwin van der Voort Founder The European and The World Federations of Paediatric, Intensive and Critical Care Societies
What would need to be considered in a contract between WFPICCS and a PCO Introduction The World Federation of Pediatric Intensive and Critical Care Societies (WFPICCS) was established in Paris in 1997 and arose from the vision of several committed leaders in the field of Pediatric Critical Care who saw the opportunity to combine international expertise, experience and influence to improve the outcomes of children suffering from life threatening illness and injury.
Introduction Recognizing that, more could be achieved by connecting national societies into an international network, than by any one nation working alone, WFPICCS envisioned a global community that would further research and distribute knowledge needed to care for critically ill infants and children.
Vision A global environment where:all children have access to high quality critical care (including emergency and intensive care) active research, education and distribution of knowledge and experience occurs around the world and across international borders.
Mission The mission of the Federation is exclusively educational, scientific and charitable in nature. It exists to find ways of improving the care of critically ill children throughout the world, and make that knowledge available to those who care for the children.
Objectives • Encourage research into all aspects of Pediatric Intensive (and Critical Care). • Encourage the development of new clinical treatments and technologies • Promote multidisciplinary collaboration between Pediatric Intensive and Critical Care specialists • Promote education programs and the dissemination of scientific and clinical information relevant to the specialty. • Assist and encourage the development and formation of national and regional organizations
Objectives • Advise upon request National and International organizations. • Recommend desirable standards and guidelines for the training of Pediatric Intensive (and Critical Care)practitioners. • Provide information regarding opportunities for postgraduate clinical and research training worldwide. • Arrange at regular intervals a World Congress of Pediatric Intensive (and Critical Care) and promote regional congresses.
In order to meet those objectives, WFPICCS needs to establish: 1) A stable organization structure which includes a secretariat and organization which deals with all the day to day correspondence, financial monitoring etc. 2) A stable financial structure which ensures that there is a reliable and consistent income stream . 3) An organizational structure that facilitates the involvement of member societies. 4) The capacity to run conferences, meetings, workshops, training courses etc all over the world.
Particular issues and concerns 1) Currently the World Congress is the major source of income for all the activities of the Federation. 2) Currently WFPICCS does have a secretariat. 3) Ideally the organization should have a “Chief Executive Officer”. 4) There are considerable opportunities for educational programmes at many levels. 5) It is possible and appropriate for WFPICCS to endorse activities that meet the objectives and standards of the organization.
Particular issues and concerns 6) There are opportunities for WFPICCS to act as an advisor to other bodies such as the WHO, and that again may provide opportunities for income 7) We have to ensure that the activities of the Federation are seen as a help to member organizations and not as a potential competition.

“In an ideal world good quality intensive care would be available to all children worldwide. However, in the countries with limited resources, the provision of intensivecare which will only benefit a few has to be weighed against the greater needs of many”

Why consider a Core PCO By accumulating experience and preventing wasting time, money and energy, WFPICCS can provide the most cost effective, responsive, targeted service by delivering the highest levels of care to its stakeholders and so meeting its reason of existence

Consistency Consistent income and delivery is essential to meet the mission and objective of the organisation Previous experiences with a CPCO were damaging to the organisation It was a challenge to find the right one
Why – the plusses Opportunity to build, year after year creating consistency, accelerating reach out of WFPICCS International experience and purchasing power, long term venue selection based on professional experience and advice Stability, reliability, financial control, prefinancing and no loss guarantee
Building for WFPICCS success CPCO is keenly aware of the short and long term objectives of WFPICCS and understands its role in the long term planning for development and delivery to all stakeholders Delegates Members Faculty Industry Suppliers
Stability, reliability, control Prefinancing and long term financial and operational planning with a balanced budget Accumulated experience in congress management of many societies and building up of the specific knowledge about WFPICCS requirements CPCO, Committees and Stakeholders develop consistent working relationship, improving and developing year after year Implement feed back of stakeholders
Stability, reliability, control ctd Financial stability because of interest free prefinancing, and no risk guarantee All promotional and marketing efforts for each activity contributes to building a long term profile and relevance of WFPICSS Relationship management
long term and happy relationships also need care andattentionWFPICCS boards and committees as well CPCO teams change – handovers need attention and care from both sidesThe environment of WFPICCS develops and changes need to be addressed regularlyContinue to develop and challenge each otherCount your blessings
Why go this way Through a well managed long-term commitment, the society and the CPCO develop a long-term partnership providing the most cost effective, responsive, targeted service to the society delivering the highest levels of care to its stakeholders. So allowing the society to develop a series of congresses over time that will attract the widest range of delegates and supporters, raising the profile of the society, its work and its vision
Look for: True global experience Check the longevity of the company Proven track record of understanding your professional environment and specialty Visit at least one of their congresses before you decide, meet top management and test their commitment Allow for a minimum of a 3 congress contract Judge by what they deliver, not only at what they costs. The “low cost” one could be more expensive to you and vice versa Add the technical plusses and minuses and allow your “gut feeling” to play a role in the selection process as well – it is a people’s “business” after all
THE ADVANTAGES OF USING A PROFESSIONALCONGRESS ORGANISER Professional Congress Organisation services offer distinct advantages for societies and associations. The buying power, professional relationships, expertise and international experience of a PCO work together to maximise the impact of a congress, allowing a society to benefit directly from a long-term partnership that raises the profile of the society itself, its congress and its work.
THE ADVANTAGES OF USING A PROFESSIONALCONGRESS ORGANISER Long term commitment Wide-ranging service Cultural added value Long term approach – maximum efficiency
ADVANTAGES OF USING A PROFESSIONAL CONGRESSORGANISER Local knowledge and experience International experience and purchasing power Financial control Stability and reliability Crisis management Venue selection
Summary Through its long-term commitment to the society, an established PCO becomes a long-term trusted partner able to provide the most costeffective, responsive, targeted service and the highest levels of customer care. This establishes a platform for the society to develop a series ofcongresses over time that will attract the widest range of delegates and supporters, raising the profile of the society, its work and its vision.
