Who we are

The board

The board provides strategic leadership to the IFSWF and appoints the chief executive, who is responsible for the day-to-day management of the IFSWF Secretariat. The IFSWF membership elects the five-member board and sets their objectives at the Forum's annual general meeting. Each board member is elected for a three-year term. The board is led by the chair, and is typically composed of the elected lead representatives of the respective IFSWF members.
