How the IFTF works
The IFTF is governed by a Council, formed of up to four delegates from each member country plus auction house representatives.
An Executive Board is elected every two years, comprising seven elected members from the fur trade and seven nominated members from the largest fur auction houses and fur breeders. The board elects a Chairman, Vice-Chairman and Treasurer. IFTF’s secretariat is based in the UK, under a Chief Executive Officer. IFTF is a not-for-profit organisation. Apart from membership subscriptions, the IFTF is financed entirely by private contributions from the international fur trade. Board and committee positions are honorary.
IFTF’s accounts are independently audited.
