Nancy Johnson will continue in the role of Past Chair and Executive Advisor Knowledge Management Committee, Tony Piucci as Executive Advisor Strategy, and Irene Thomas Johnson as Executive Advisor and Chair of Global Workforce Initiative Programs.
“It’s a great honor to continue leading the important work of the IFMA Foundation.
