Committee Sign Up
If you are interested in becoming involved in the work of the GFPD, join one of the committees below.
The GFPD has several different committees that you can join.
Community Advisory Council- The CAC (otherwise known as the Community Advisory Council) 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 that 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 2020 fundraisers have been canceled or indefinitely postponed, and the Development Committee is searching for creative ways to fundraise in the midst of the pandemic.
Finance Committee- Finance Committee helps guide the financial strategy for our organization.
Scientific Initiatives Committee- The SIC was formed in late 2016 to help expand the scientific initiatives of the GFPD and to fund promising research projects with the potential to help improve the quality of life of patients with peroxisomal disorders.
