The GFPD has several different committees that you can join.

Community Advisory Council

The CAC is made up of GFPD families and other members of our global community including educators and deaf-blind professionals. The goal of the CAC is to help ensure the programming of the GFPD is family-centric.

Conference Planning Committee

The GFPD Conference Planning Committee helps guide and assist the board, staff, and contractors in developing the strategic plan for the GFPD International Family and Scientific Conferences.

Development Committee

The GFPD Development Committee focuses on providing GFPD families with ideas and support for hosting their own local fundraisers. With the spread of COVID-19, many of our fundraisers have been canceled or indefinitely postponed, and the Development Committee is searching for creative ways to fundraise in the midst of the pandemic.

Diversity Committee 

At the GFPD, Diversity is more than just a statement, it is the way we run our organization. We are committed to promoting acceptance and advocating for equality for all of our #GFPDWarriors.

Finance Committee

The GFPD’s Finance Committee is comprised of professionals across the US that are dedicated to ensuring that The GFPD is financially sound to advance our mission of funding research and providing family support.
