In the Annual Business Meeting on 1979 new rules were established and the foundation for Working Group (WG) activity was launched. WGs do not have their own financial status and must apply the FCS corporate rules. Rules for the WG activities are also applied. Each Working Group has aChairman, Vice-Chairman andSecretary and these representatives are selected biannually. WGs report their activities to the FCS Board yearly.

Finnish Cardiac Society has 11 Working Groups. The activity of the WGs has been one main pillar at the continuous development of the FCS. WGs have a major contribution when planning scientific activities of the society. Also, the preparation of the national recommendations for practise are mostly conducted by the WGs.
