Board and Committees

The IFA is governed by a board of trustees with a breadth of knowledge and experience who direct and manage how the charity is run. Run by aromatherapists for aromatherapists, the board of trustees are volunteers elected by members of the Federation with two lay members who are non-members.

The board of trustees are supported by numerous committees and specialist advisors who act as consultants to the Federation. The IFA currently has the following committees:

  • Disciplinary & Sanctions Committee
  • Education & Quality Assurance Committee
  • Finance & Resources Committee
  • Professional Standards & Registration Committee
  • Public Relations & Media Committee
  • Research Committee

Each trustee and committee member declare their personal interests to the IFA to enable us to effectively manage any identified conflicts.

All directors and committee members have clear terms of reference. We are dedicated to protecting the public by regulating, fairly, consistently, transparently and proportionately.
