IFIA is governed by a Council. The members of the Council are either appointed by the A and B members of IFIA (two by each A member and one by each B member) or elected by the C members collectively (two Council members).

Council members are appointed/elected for a term of three years, and may be re-appointed/re-elected.  The Council elects the President for a renewable two year term.

The Sector Committees report to the Council along with the Legal Committee and Compliance Committee.

IFIA maintains a legal entity in the USA, known as the IFIA Americas Committee. This entity provides the legal basis for certain IFIA activities in the USA.
