Message from India Chair

Welcome to this remarkable community of facilitators!
As we embark on this new chapter in 2024, I am energized by the opportunities and possibilities that lie ahead for our community. With fresh responsibilities, I am committed to accelerate our initiatives, enhance visibility and establish robust processes to amplify our reach and impact.
Our goal is clear: to enable, empower and elevate the impact of facilitation across India.
We are proud to be one of the largest IAF communities, boasting 200+ members strong. Our diversity in cultures and regions within India makes us a unique space, ready for bespoke initiatives that cater to our dynamic landscape.
As we forge ahead, curating meaningful and relevant programs through facilitation and collaborating closely with our members for sustainable impact will take priority. Guiding diverse groups towards shared goals, fostering open communication and harnessing the power of diverse perspectives shall pave our way ahead on this path.
I invite you to join hands with us as we explore the potential benefits of facilitation for ourselves, our organizations, communities, and clients.

Together, let's spread the power of 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)
