Board nominations deadline extended

The deadline for the submission of nominations by those wishing to be elected to the Board by a ballot of all voting members has been extended to 0800 on Monday 20 May.

In July 2019 four IFE Board Directors reach the end of their terms of office.  Two of these vacancies will be filled by ballot of members of the International General Assembly (IGA) and one by ballot of members of the IFE Registrants Group (IFERG). The fourth vacancy will be filled by ballot amongst all voting members of the IFE.

Requirements of an IFE Board Director

Directors of the IFE are also Trustees of the charity. Their responsibilities include:

  • Ensuring the IFE’s overall strategic direction is in line with its aims and the requirement to provide public benefit
  • Good governance, including legal and regulatory compliance
  • Due diligence to ensure the financial health and satisfactory financial audit of the Institution
  • Corporate risk identification and management
  • Review/approval of annual accounts
     

The IFE is currently registered as a company and charity in Scotland, which means that Directors are required to act in accordance with the Companies Act 2006 and the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005. In addition, Trustees may have portfolios of work based on key areas of IFE activities, taking a strategic lead in an area identified by the Board and assigned to them by the Chairman.
