IHFDA has established committees around special interests and topics. The committees are open to active IHFDA members. Committees serve the purpose of bringing together members with shared interests, to share information, achieve tasks, and/or provide resources to the broader IHFDA network.
The current committees are listed below with general information on each of them. If you are interested in joining a committee, please complete the Interest Form at the bottom of this page and someone will be in contact with you in the next 1-2 weeks. If you have a recommendation for additional committees to be established please contact a member of the board to provide the suggestion.
