The men and women serving on the Board of Directors come from different horizons and have various backgrounds, either public or private, employed or self-employed persons, consultants, academics, diplomats.

Most of them hold a field experience in international cooperation. More than a quarter of the members actually live outside France.

IDEFFIE intends to bring together experts from the whole French-speaking world.

Even if the society gathers a majority of private individuals, it also includes public institutions and companies that undertake international expertise or share its good practices.

The Bureau emanates directly from the Board of Directors; it supports the President in the management of the society.
