TFWA is pleased to announce the members of its new Management Committee, elected by TFWA members during the Association’s annual general meeting on 1-2 October. The Committee will serve a two-year mandate until the next elections are due in October 2022.

TFWA President Alain Maingreaud said: "I am delighted to welcome the members of our new Management Committee, and thank them all for their commitment in agreeing to serve TFWA in the years ahead. As we face what is undoubtedly the most challenging time for our business and the industry, it is more important than ever to have a strong leadership team at TFWA. I believe our new Management Committee has the experience and knowledge to help the Association and the wider industry overcome the challenges ahead."

The TFWA Vice Presidents will be elected at the first meeting of the new Management Committee later this month. A further meeting in December will convene to elect the TFWA President for a one-year mandate, in accordance with the Association’s statutes.
