Facilitation Impact Awards
Honouring excellence in facilitation
As a professional association with members in more than 65 countries, the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) is well placed to recognise the power of facilitation worldwide. For more than 20 years we have been strong advocates for the power of facilitation in helping organisations to address challenges and achieve results.
The Facilitation Impact Awards (FIA) honours organisations that have used facilitation to achieve a measurable and positive impact as well as the facilitator(s) who worked with them.

IAF volunteer evaluators
We are looking for IAF members to evaluate submissions in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese.
Being an evaluator is an opportunity for you to support a global community of practice and learn more about facilitation and how to prepare award submissions.
You can evaluate submissions any time that suits you during 11-24 July 2017. A webinar training session on how-to evaluate submissions will be held in late June.
Evaluators may be nominated in a submission but they are not allowed to evaluate submissions in which they are named.
If you would like to volunteer, email FIA@iaf-world.org by 20 June 2017 with details of your IAF region and the languages you can evaluate in.
The Facilitation Impact Awards Governance Policy includes information on probity requirements for the awards.
