The APF Board consists of twelve members who are recommended by the general membership and brought forward by the Nominations Committee for final voting by the board. The Board is a working board that oversees governance and operations of APF, which remains an all-volunteer organization. The Board is governed by the APF bylaws to fulfill the mission of the organization. 

The Nominations Committee makes a deliberate effort to ensure representation on the Board that reflects the membership’s global diversity and specific needs for governance and operations. The Committee is chaired by Dr. Cindy Frewen and consists of volunteer APF members and follows the APF's Nominating Principles.

APF Founding Members

This group represents fourteen board members, three board chairs, multiple committee chairs, and four Most Significant Futures Works authors. Many were not only founders of the APF but also created initiatives. Much appreciation is due to this group, who had the foresight and leadership to begin a new organization for professional futurists. Thanks to each of you!

Two other members should be remembered, now deceased. Joe Coates was a founder and pillar of the professional futures community for decades. Ken Harris started the Most Significant Futures Works program, ran it until 2014, and is fondly remembered by all.
