The IFEA Educational Foundation was formed in 1993 with a mission of ensuring that the IFEA has resources to fulfill its own educational mission. The IFEA has worked very hard over the years to continue raising the level of professionalism in our industry, along with the level of recognition and awareness for the industry and those who work in it by the media and the general public.
