IFAPP is comprised of three governing bodies:
The Board of Officers is in charge of IFAPP's day-to-day management and has the broadest powers to do all that is necessary or useful to achieve IFAPP's goals. The Board is comprised of five officers, President, President Elect, Past President, Secretary and Treasurer, plus three Standing Officers
The House of Delegates is composed of Delegates selected by IFAPP's National Member Associations (NMAs). Each NMA appoints one Delegate to represent it in the House of Delegates. The House meets at least twice a year and is responsible for electing the Board of Officers, determining IFAPP's strategy, approving its annual accounts and budget, setting membership fees and deciding whether to amend its regulations or Constitution.
The General Assembly is held every two years to coincide with the International Conference on Pharmaceutical Medicine. It may be held in unison with the meeting of the House of Delegates at the Conference. At the General Assembly, the Board of Officers presents its annual report, which is to include the balance sheet and profit and loss statement for the period. The General Assembly may make suggestions on agenda items, but the final decision on all issues rests with the House of Delegates.
