Strategic Synergy: Highlights from the ITF Board Meeting

This week’s ITF Board Meeting held in Bangkok, Thailand, marked a milestone in the organization’s journey. Board members engaged in strategic discussions aimed at fortifying the ITF’s governance structures, ensuring a robust foundation for effective decision-making and long-term sustainability.

The meeting was also a place to discuss operational matters, fostering a collaborative environment where key strategic decisions were made. Integral to the proceedings was the review and approval of the 2024 Budget, demonstrating the Board’s commitment to transparency and fiscal responsibility. The Board also reviewed and approved the Annual Report (which we will publish next week).

Heartfelt congratulations to the newly appointed members of the Executive Board! We are excited to announce Alex Rodrigo Castillo Hernández and Sara R. Phillips as Co-Chairs, Liberty Matthyse as Treasurer, and Mikee Inton-Campbell as the Secretary of the Board. As members of the Executive Board, they will play a pivotal role in shaping and executing the strategic vision. Each of them brings a unique set of skills that will define the success and growth of the ITF for years to come.

We are thrilled to extend a warm welcome to the five amazing activists who have recently joined the Board. Each one brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our organization, stemming from their diverse backgrounds and outstanding contributions as trans activists. The selection process was highly competitive, reflecting our commitment to ensuring that our leadership team represents a broad spectrum of perspectives and skills.

As we usher in this new era, we are confident that the innovative ideas, passion, and dedication these Board Members bring will further the ITF’s mission on a global scale. We look forward to the positive impact their collective wisdom and experience will have on our organization and the communities we serve. To read more about the new Board Members click here.

We also extend our gratitude to the outgoing Board Members for their extraordinary contributions and dedicated service.

Their commitment and passion have left a lasting impact, and we appreciate everything they have accomplished during their tenure on the Board. As they transition to new endeavors, we thank them for their efforts and wish them continued success in their future pursuits.
