The Incentive Federation (IFI) is seeking additional members to serve on its Board of Directors for 2024, the organization has announced. According to an association statement, any IFI member may self-nominate or be nominated to serve on the board. The board consists of 10 industry leaders including the IFI Executive Director and Legal Counsel, George Delta. The Federation seeks experienced professionals to help guide the Federation’s programs and activities. 
The IFI board convenes quarterly for a conference call, typically either a Zoom or Teams video call, with no face-to-face meetings to minimize expenses. A ballot of members wishing to serve is prepared in November each year for the membership to consider and the elected members begin their one-year terms in January, the organization says.
The IFI will soon release a new report entitled “Tax Considerations for Incentives, Recognition and Safety Programs.” The project consolidates multiple tax reports into a single document and is headed by Mike Donnelly, President of Hinda Incentives and an IFI Board member.
Current board members are: 
  • Richard Blabolil, CPIM, President, Marketing Innovators International, Vice Chair for Corporations George Delta, Esq., Executive Director, and Counsel.
