Leadership

​​​​​​​​​​​​Update: Board of Directors approves historic changes to governance structure .

The International Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors consisting of labor trustees, management trustees and benefit plan administrators (salaried and contract) of multiemployer or single employer employee benefit plans in the United States and Canada. Professional advisors to employee benefit plans such as accountants, actuaries, attorneys, consultants and investment advisors serve as Advisory Directors.

The Executive Committee oversees the progress of projects and serves as the main conduit in channeling proposals for Board consideration.
