Why apply?

Working on the FIGT Board of Directors and with the associated committees is a fantastic chance to use and grow your professional skills while giving back to your global, intercultural community.

What is the Board of Directors?

FIGT’s Board of Directors is responsible for executing and governing FIGT’s mission and strategy. It is a working Board — not an advisory one.

Board Directors are expected to:
  • Attend monthly, 2-hour virtual General Board Meetings, which are held on weekends and/or outside normal business hours.
  • Attend the 2022 and 2023 Conference(s) that occur during their term of office.
  • The Treasurer is an Officer of the Board and is required to attend monthly Executive Committee meetings.
