Board of Directors

The affairs of the Institute are governed by its Board of Directors. Board membership is an elected position, with new members elected annually by the sitting board as board seats become open. An open nomination process is extended to FTI membership when board seats are being considered. The bylaws governing the board and board member election process are available on request. Participation in FTI committees and the Special Advisory Council is recognized as a pathway to consideration of board membership.
