Forms of Membership
The differentiated membership structure of the IFD creates a competent and strong international community of interests of the roofing industry. This offers the individual member opportunities to expand his own sphere of influence and to be represented together with other members by the IFD in international bodies, such as UEAPME. The IFD proves its competence through the documented work results of regularly meeting commissions and expert working groups. In this way, joint action at the international level is substantiated and the assertion of members’ interests is made possible. Only through constant joint work can the strong community of IFD members achieve a sustainable improvement in the industry-specific framework conditions.
