Elections to the Board

About the Board 

The Board of Directors is the leadership body of the International Association of Facilitators (IAF). Directors serve in a voluntary capacity and oversee the Association's operations and strategic initiatives. The key responsibilities and duties are explained in the general role description for all Directors. 

The Board consists of 16 members, whose two year terms are staggered so that approximately half of the Board positions come to term each year.

Nomination Procedures

Each year, a Nominations Commitee of IAF members oversees the elections to the Board.

The 2017 Nominations Committee includes:

  • Bill Staples, IAF Hall of Fame, Chair of the Committee
  • Ronit Andorn-Broza, Canada
  • Giuseppe Totino, EMENA
  • Michelle Rush, Oceania
  • Jonathan Bell, United States 

All IAF members were invited to nominate themselves or other members to stand as candidates. As a volunteer-led Association, our success depends on the time and energy given of our members. 

Candidates completed a Candidate Information Form, which was submitted with a current résumé or curriculum vitae, to the Nominations Committee.

Directors are elected by the Association's membership by means of an electronic vote. All members in good standing will receive an email with a unique link to the elections platform around early October. 

The process will adhere to the policies and procedures described in the IAF Bylaws.
