International Federation of Agricultural Journalists
The IFAJ is a non-partisan, not-for-profit professional association for agricultural journalists in 45 countries. IFAJ members embrace freedom of the press.
Representing more than 5,000 professionals, the IFAJ gives agricultural journalists and communicators a platform for professional development and international networking.
As well as serving current members, it reaches out to new member countries in South America, Asia and developing nations.
One of the IFAJ’s mandates is improved contact between agricultural journalists.
To that end, the IFAJ organises an annual congress – hosted by a member country’s agricultural journalists’ association – and maintains a list of professional contacts to help in serving the mission of sharing news about agriculture.
The IFAJ is a volunteer organisation, led by elected officers. Members in each affiliated country are represented by an individual who serves on the IFAJ executive committee.
This leadership group meets twice a year to conduct IFAJ business and formulate policy for its members. A global office helps facilitate the organisation’s work and develop programs.
The IFAJ is supported by member-paid dues and through corporate sponsorships from various companies.
The Guild's IFAJ representative is Jane Craigie, who may be contacted on 01466 780078 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
