2021-2022 HFTP Leadership Update: Annual Business Meeting and Board of Directors

Annually HFTP holds an election for new officers and directors to lead the association. Because of the unique year the association has experienced, it has been determined to postpone the annual election of new HFTP Global Directors and Executive Committee for one year, with the next slate selection scheduled for May 2022. Remaining with the current group of leaders will allow for a seamless progression of the association as it recovers from a financially difficult year and works to build back its program offerings.

Join HFTP at the virtual 2021 Annual Business Meeting as it recognizes the association’s accomplishments over the past year, as well as the Global Board of Directors and Executive Committee. The meeting will be streamed on Wednesday, October 20 (time to be determined). Stay tuned to HFTP News for access details.
