Freedonia is governed by a Board of Directors who are responsible for managing the affairs of the organization as well as making funding decisions. They meet on at least a quarterly basis. Directors also contribute to the work of the organization on an ongoing basis between meetings.
Directors are not paid for their services as Directors. Freedonia has no paid staff.
Freedonia Directors participate in a number of standing committees including an Investment Committee, a Legal/Technical Committee, an Intake Committee and an Outreach and Promotions Committee.
Freedonia’s Board of Directors uses consensus decision-making wherever possible. Where timely decisions cannot be made by consensus, we make decisions by voting.
