What are they?

The Freedom By Design Advisory Group has been charged to communicate with chapters and track all projects throughout the year. The best way to do that? Establishing a network for FDB Directors. These networks will be quad based with the FBDAG sharing information across quads.

Why are they important?

The current structure of communication from the local to the national level is through the Quad Directors. This network of Chapter Presidents creates a huge support group and we want to expand this support to Freedom By Design Directors. Problems finding a Mentor? Having difficulty fundraising? Want to start a program but don’t know what the first step is? These are just a few of the many questions you have and that many others have faced in the past. Why not reach out and overcome these challenges together?

How will they work?

These meetings will happen at least once a month. A member of the FBDAG will reach out to FBD Directors by Quad via email. A Doodle Poll survey will be used to determine the meeting times for each Quad. Based on availability and capacity, two or more hangouts may happen. We want to make sure we can answer as many questions as possible! After meeting times have been confirmed, an agenda will be sent out. Make sure you read it and prepare any questions you may have.

Don’t have an established FBD Program but want to start one? Not sure your Directors contact info is correct? Then fill out this survey!

The FBDAG is excited to meet FBD Directors across the nation!

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Adam Fogel, Chair of the Freedom by Design Advisory Group.
