The General Assembly
The General Assembly is the highest governing body in the Federation. It is composed of full, associated, supporting and honorary members. The General Assembly meets at least once every two years, during the annual conference. It appoints the President and elects the Executive Council amongst its members.
The FIAT/IFTA Executive Council, the Commissions and the Office
The Executive Council executes the Federation’s strategy by starting up new initiatives, organising events, publishing documents and so on. The Executive Council is chaired by the President. Amongst its members, the Executive Council elects one or more vice-Presidents, a Secretary-General and a Treasurer. The Council can also co-opt a limited number of members according to the needs. Commission Chairs are ex officio members of the Executive Council.
The Commissions offer what our members like best about FIAT/IFTA: the knowledge and advise of colleagues. Archival experts with valuable practical knowledge and day-to-day experience represent the domain-related knowledge. The commissions indeed form an important basis for FIAT/IFTA to function as a helpful, relevant and knowledgeable organisation for its members.
