IFI AMBASSADORS

Consisting of a select group of influential professionals who care about the quality development of Interior Architecture/Design, IFI Ambassadors are dedicated and empathetic individuals committed to providing support to IFI by connecting, promoting and furthering IFI’s mission, vision and programs in the geographical regions they each represent. These IFI representatives are influential interior architects, designers and related industry experts from all regions of the world. Each member embodies exceptional communication skills and a desire to positively contribute to building a strong worldwide network for both IFI and the Interiors Profession. Each IFI Ambassador is formally appointed by IFI to be an effective emissary of the Federation.

 

PURPOSE
IFI Ambassadors work to actively engage local Interior Architecture / Design practitioners, educators and students, as well as members of government, public figures and those working closely with the design community and industry.
