-The budget for USB present for 2017 congress. Every year the board wills to thank all our members that effort coming to the congress by giving a gift. This items serve also to represent us, given to sponsors and everywhere we have a meeting about conservation agreements and other representative matters. Last year it was an USB pendrive marked in laser IFWP in green colour that costed 918 euro. We made 1.200 units and we have 982 that will last some years. This year present has been a soft lens cleaner cloth in green colour, printed IFWP. We made 200 and the cost was 94 euro.


-The conservation project. We discuss about this project in our congress and informed about its basement. Very soon a large pdf with all details will reach our members and published in our media. Basically is a campaign with different photo equipment brands and dealers to distribute a foldable brochure to promote the respect to  nature from some of our most renown nature and conservation photographers in IFWP.
