APF Board

 

The APF Board consists of nine 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 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 Garry Golden and consists of seasoned APF members.

In 2020, APF's Board will increase to 12 members, with greater representation from Asia, Africa and Latin America. 




MEETINGS
The Board elects a Chair, Vice-Chair and Treasurer from its professional membership. Meetings are held up to six times a year via web conference. The Board also meets in person to coincide with an APF gathering or another major futures conference. Every three years the Board hosts a planning retreat. The first strategic planning retreat was held in Washington DC in Feb 27- March 1, 2011 (strategic plan 2011-2013). The second strategic planning retreat was held in Atlanta, Georgia Feb 4-6, 2014 (strategic plan 2014-2016). The third strategic planning retreat was held in Reston, Virginia Jan 5-7, 2017 (strategic plan 2017-2019).

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, recently passed. 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.
