The OIFE consists of more than 30 member organizations. Each member organization is represented by a delegate, normally with 1-2 replacements (substitutes).
The delegates form the Board of the OIFE. The Board usually comes together once a year at our Annual General Meeting (AGM). All delegates can participate at the AGM, but only delegates from ordinary member organizations have a vote. Votes can also be cast on email.
The Executive Committee
The Board elects an Executive Committee (EC) of five people responsible for running the daily business of the OIFE.
