The Executive

The seven-strong IPF Executive is based close to Liverpool Street in the City of London. Headed by Sue Forster, we look after every aspect of the IPF; editing publications, managing events, responding to consultations, commissioning work and, most of all, supporting the membership. If you have a query, please don't hesitate to contact a member of the team.
