About IFOAM North America

IFOAM North America is in the process of becoming an officially established self-organized structure under the umbrella of IFOAM - Organics International. This page will become the landing page for this new regional body.


Following over 18 months of discussion and planning, an initial General Assembly took place in Baltimore on September 22, 2016. The minutes of that meeting are available through the links to the right of this page. Also available here are the Rules of Procedure for IFOAM North America, as agreed at that General Assembly.

From October 18-28, 2016 the election of IFOAM North America's first Board of Directors took place. The profiles of Board candidates can be found here. All current IFOAM - Organics International affiliates from English-speaking countries of North America who have voting member status were eligible to vote in this election.

Results of the election can be found by clicking here. The new Board is scheduled to have its first meeting on January 4, 2017.
