The Public Member will be appointed by the IFPA-CC Chairman.
*All members of the IFPA-CC must be Stakeholders in IFPA-PFT- Certification. This requires them to remain current as IFPA certified PFTs. Except for the Public Member (Seat 5) as described above. Failure to remain a Stakeholder will result in expulsion from the IFPA-CC.
