Board of Directors

The Denver Chapter of IFMA Board of Directors are elected officials. Each serve a tour of duty for two years. If one is unable to serve out their term, a special election will be conducted for a replacement officer in accordance with the Chapter's By Laws..

The Denver Chapter of IFMA has recently changed some its Board of Director positions such as from Treasurer to the Vice President of Finance and Secretary to the Vice President of Communications. Also, it added two new positions (Vice President of Member Services and Vice President of Programs). Each position serves as a team leader to the various committees that align within it. It also ensures the chapter is delivering operational excellence in executing its strategic plan.The changes was agreed upon to establish a hierarchy of leadership based upon the absents of the President. Committees have also been realigned to increase communications with the team leadership and balancing their responsibilities. This helps the chapter to be more structured with IFMA and other business practices. Also, it will be a tool to assist during the elections on nominating other Board of Directors to take the leading role of the chapter.
