Due to the expiration of terms of board members, the IFIC Board currently has vacancies for new board members. Appointments are to serve a three-year term, with the option for one re-appointment of three years. Appointment of the new members will be in September 2019.

The Foundation operates through the IFIC Executive. IFIC Executive is managed by an appointed CEO and includes three main directorates: Programmes, Communication and Operations & Finance. Since its formal establishment in 2011, through the IFIC Executive, the Foundation has expanded and grown its activities holding multiple well-known large-scale conferences every year, providing implementation support in multiple countries, a rich educational portfolio and multiple educational programmes.

IFIC is an international foundation and is governed, as such, by an international board that agrees on the allocation of tasks, priorities and specific powers. Its main duties are to agree on the mission, vision and objectives of the Foundation, to establish the values by which IFIC holds itself accountable and to ensure that the Foundation has the capacity to carry out its diverse range of activities, guaranteeing that IFIC has the availability of adequate financial resources to manage its affairs. The board appoints the Chief Executive Officer of IFIC Executive to whom powers are delegated for the daily management and running of affairs on behalf of the Board.

To renew IFIC’s governance, IFIC will establish a board of 10 to 13 persons to ensure the necessary international and thematic representation on the board.
