The IX-F Executive Board consists of:
The 3 officer positions of the EB (chairman, Secretary and Treasurer) rotate annually, and the Administrator rotates in conjunction with the Secretary function. EB meetings are taking place twice a year, either via online conferencing facilities or face-to-face, during other industry meetings.
The federation has no fixed postal address and no permanent staff.
The Federation administrator takes the lead in supporting the joint activities of the IXPAs conducted on behalf of the Federation. The administrator also provides support to the Federation EB and any specific coordination groups that may eventuate (e.g. technical standards group, route server group etc...)
