Meet Our Board

The IFC Advisory Board was formed to help improve IFC by serving as a forum for the free exchange, discussion, and evaluation of ideas.  The primary guideline for advisory board meetings is freedom of communication. Any idea or comment is valid and is maintained in confidence. No topic is taboo, and honest feedback is encouraged.

In addition to our gratitude and appreciation, all members of the IFC Client Advisory Board receive The Diamond Key service platform during their term of service.
