Our Committees

Our Committees provide the main source of support, expertise and guidance for the WFSA's programmes and activities. They are essential to delivery and commit thousands of hours of volunteer time to the WFSA every year.

Members must be experts in the area of interest to their Committee and be committed to the mission of the Federation. They serve up to two consecutive four (4) year periods between General Assemblies and, in exceptional circumstances, may serve a third term as the Chair of a Committee.
