What is the FIGT Board of Directors?

FIGT’s Board of Directors is responsible for both the execution and governance of FIGT’s mission and strategy. It is a working Board - not only an advisory one - and it is composed of volunteer Board members elected for 2-year terms amongst FIGT members. All Board Directors and committee members are voluntary positions.
