2020-2021 IFI Governance

Selected by members every two years at the General Assembly, IFI is led by a President and governed by an Executive Board consisting of the President, President-Elect, Past-President and IFI CEO and four to six other Board Members.

The individuals that serve in the IFI Board are fundamental for our organization to carry out its mission. We thank them for their passion and commitment to further the Interiors profession at a worldwide level.
