chairpersons gallery (past-present)

Below we give an overview of our chairmen, over time, in chronological order. Each row represents roughly a decade. The list starts at the bottom with our founding chairman Francis Ofner. On the top row, right: Guillaume Lavallée, the current chairman. Click on the portraits for background information, career descriptions and general profiles. Under each portrait is indicated during which period this person fulfilled the position of FPA chairman. Note: some men have held the position for two non-consecutive periods. Their first term defines where they are listed on this page. Detailed information and/or portraits of a few individuals are missing from our archive. If you can and want to help us fill in the blanks, it would be greatly appreciated.
