IFAMA Governance Updates

IFAMA is governed by a Board of Directors and an Executive Committee. Its officers include a President, President Elect, and Past President. The association’s programs and activities are administered by the IFAMA Business Office in Washington, DC. The IFAMA Board of Directors convened at the 2015 Annual Conference in Saint Paul, Minnesota, where four new members were nominated and elected to the Board. At the Closing Session on the last day of the conference, Thad Simons, 2015 IFAMA Board President, passed the torch to the new 2016 IFAMA Board President, Johan von Rooyen. Thank you to Thad Simons for your work during your term as IFAMA Board President.
