What is the Board of Directors?
FIGT’s Board of Directors is responsible for both execution and governance of FIGT’s mission and strategy. It is a working Board - not only an advisory one - and comprises volunteer Board Members elected for 2-year terms from amongst current FIGT members.
Four Executive Committee roles oversee the overall functioning of the Board: the President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Executive Secretary. See the Board Structure.
All Board Directors and committee members are voluntary positions.
