Message from India Chair

The International Association of Facilitators (IAF) is a participatory organisation with members in more than 65 countries. The India Chapter is an integral part of it.
Our vision is to see professional facilitation being used to address the challenges faced by people in their groups, organisations and communities.
Our mission is to grow the community of practice for all those who facilitate, establish internationally accepted professional standards, build credibility, and promote the value of facilitation while enabling powerful change.
We are an inclusive organisation with members from all walks of life and different ethnic backgrounds. We are open to different views, perspectives and approaches to facilitation, with a focus on process facilitation. We would like to build a strong community that works together, learns together, and uses our facilitation skills to build a better India. We aim to do this by being inclusive, open, and drive excellence.
We welcome everyone who has an interest in facilitation.


When you become a member of the International Association of Facilitators, you are not buying a service, but rather joining a global community.
(Martin G., IAF member, Manchester, UK)
