The IFX Forum holds face-to-face meetings regularly, and its working groups and committees meet often via teleconference in the interim. Please note that while IFX Forum committee and working group meetings are closed to outsiders, interested companies are welcome to send representatives to face-to-face meetings prior to committing to IFX Forum membership.
