Council Members

FDDC's Governor-appointed Council Members join us in our mission to advocate and promote meaningful participation in all aspects of life for persons with developmental disabilities.

FDDC Board

Our Council Members

The Florida Developmental Disabilities Council is an advisory board, established under the federal Developmental Disabilities and Bill of Rights Act, 2000. Up to 30 seats are established for the FDDC Council and must match the requirements established under the DD Act. Interested members can submit their initial application and resume to the Council. Applications are reviewed annually.

Meet the Council Members

It is with great pleasure that we are served by our Council Members. Without their leadership and advice we could be less equiped to accomplish our mission.
