From the very beginning FIGT has been passionately built up by its champions, members and believers.

In the last few years of transition to a membership organization a small dedicated team of Board members and supporters has restructured and grown our organization. We made our first global move in 2016 and there are braver milestones to come!

Now is the time for your participation in the exciting journey ahead. Join us in furthering the legacy of many amazing pioneers!


We invite applications for a number of key Board positions this year, including the following (click on the position to see detailed role descriptions):

Why apply?

Working on Board of Directors and associated committees is a fantastic chance to use and grow your professional skills while you create innovative value for your own global, intercultural community. Use your creativity, knowledge, enthusiasm and leadership skills, while connecting with and learning from a dynamic group of like-minded expats.

It’s the perfect blend of value-added, fulfilling work and a work culture that understands and accommodates your own transitions.


What are Board of Directors and Committee Members?


Board of Directors:

FIGT’s Board of Directors is responsible for both execution and governance of mission and strategy. It comprises volunteer Board Members elected for 2-year terms from amongst current FIGT members.

Four Executive Committee roles, oversee the overall functioning of the Board: the President, Vice President, Treasurer and Executive Secretary. Each Board member is expected to chair a committee.


Committee Members:

Each Board Chair’s committee is staffed by non-Board members. Committees will implement strategies and meet goals for the year. Ideally many committee members will eventually step up to nominations for Board of Director positions.

All Board Directors and committee members are voluntary positions.

The Board structure can be found here.


How will the Nominations Process work?
