As a close link to the industry, and as the link between WAN-IFRA's current work and the Board, the WAN-IFRA committees of members participate in the continuous development of the association. The committees are dedicated to supporting and advising WAN-IFRA in its activities in areas such as advocacy, media development, research, events, trainings and standardisation and thus participating in shaping the future of our industry.

Our committees are open for applications from member companies that want to assume a more active role within its membership. After election by the General Assembly of Members, each chair of WAN-IFRA Regional Committees and Advisory Boards is granted with a seat at the WAN-IFRA's Board and Executive Committee.
