Meetings and Steering Committee elections

IAF has an elected Steering Committee, responsible for determining and overseeing its work; they meet primarily by teleconference several times a year. Elections are held every two years at an Annual General Meeting, details of the election process can be found below.

In addition to Annual General Meetings each year we hold two meetings alongside the International Federation of Reproduction Rights Organisations (IFRRO), which hosts two congresses in different parts of the world, each year. A range of issues of importance to creators is discussed at these meetings. Local creators are invited to speak and share the issues of greatest concern to them.

Our members can help guide this work by making suggestions to the Steering Committee about what issues they’d like to see on the agenda at the meetings each year. Please contact us with any questions or suggestions you have.

The current members of the steering committee can be seen below.
