General and by-laws
IFP currently is an association according to Swiss law. The members of IFP convene at the general assembly (GA) each year, which is generally held in conjunction with the Walk21 conference. At the GA, the members elect the board and the president, decide about changes of the by-laws and discuss and influence the general policy of the association.
IFP’s policy is made by its Board (Executive Committee), which consists of delegates from at least three different continents.
