IHAF’s Board of Directors represents the top in-house advertising agency executives and consultants in the country.

The Board also serves as ambassadors for IHAF, contributing to membership growth and the advancement of the association overall.
As IHAF Chairman Mark Shafer shares, “IHAF is dedicated to helping internal agencies and creative services organizations realize their competitive advantage.
