THE COMPANIES ACTS 1985 AND 2006
Board Of Trustees
The IFPA Board of Trustees consists of a Chairperson, Treasurer and up to nine other trustees, working together with an independent Company Secretary. In addition to being fully qualified aromatherapists and members of the IFPA, many of the trustees each bring their own skills in business and industry to the board. Three spaces on the board are reserved for ‘Lay members’, who are not members of the IFPA.
Being on the IFPA Board of Directors is a voluntary task. Board meetings take place once every two months. Each trustee is allocated to a committee, according to their skillset, which meets in between and reports back to the wider board at the Board meeting.
how to become a trustee
Although any member may apply to be a trustee, the Board will adopt a selection process for candidates, based upon IFPA’s strategic direction and the ‘best fit’ skill sets offered by prospective candidates.
Approximately three months before the Annual General Meeting, the current board will communicate candidate criteria to the general membership, inviting applications from members who fit the criteria for that year. Applications will be evaluated through an interview process, after which the board will select the best fit candidates and ballot the members with the view to appointing the candidates selected.
