How We Are Managed
MFPA is run as a "democratic co-operative". All the member artists have a voice in MFPA operations and it is owned by all of them.
Not all wish to be directly involved in the management of the business and such an arrangement would be impractical for reasons of geography and health, so they elect by postal ballot delegates to represent their interests.
The management procedures are governed by the statutes, which require that a delegates convention be held at least once every three years. In practice, this has taken place much more frequently.
For electoral purposes, the MFPA divides the world into four regions: Europe, Africa and the Middle East; the Americas; the Far East; Australasia and Oceania. Each region deputes at least one delegate for every five members.
