Consider becoming a Board Member!

Board members play key roles in maintaining organizational accountability and sustainability. Board members have the most important volunteer role of all. With it comes a legal obligation to ensure the organization remains true to its mission and protects the public trust. IFR’s Board requires a three-year commitment. If you’d like to be considered for the Board, please send us an email under the Contact menu.
