About the IAF

The International Association of Facilitators (IAF) is a participatory organisation with members in more than 65 countries. As a professional association, we set internationally accepted industry standards, provide accreditation, support a community of practice, advocate and educate on the power of facilitation and embrace the diversity of facilitators.

If we were to use just one sentence to describe what the IAF does and stands for, it would be "enabling powerful change". Every meeting or process that is facilitated has an impact on the individuals and the groups of which they are a part. Good facilitation can change the way people think and act, and ultimately support them to positively change the world around them.

Who are our member?

The International Association of Facilitators (IAF) welcomes everyone with an interest in facilitation and its widespread use in helping people work together effectively.

IAF members vary in their facilitation practice. Some are new to the field, while others have years of experience. Our members work in government, corporate, non-profit, education, community, and international development sectors, to name but a few. Some work in-house, others operate as external consultants.

Our Past, Present & Future

The Association was formed in 1994 and has a rich history of participatory development. From our past has emerged some of the foundational tools of the facilitation profession, including the IAF Statement of Values and Code of Ethics and the Core Facilitation Competencies

Today, the Association is growing worldwide, fueled in large part by the growth and activities taking place within national and local IAF Chapters.
