To complement the skills, expertise, and insights of the National Board of Directors, FRUA appoints an Advisory Board consisting of parents, professionals, and leaders in the international adoption community. Advisory Board members contribute to FRUA in many diverse ways. A critical contribution of Advisory Board members is to keep FRUA plugged into the latest research affecting our children.
Advisory Board members provide the National Board insights into issues of mutual interest and concern, such as developmental delays, educational challenges and remediation, the effects of trauma histories on children, and a host of other topics associated with institutionalization. Advisory Board members may present at FRUA’s annual education conference and often contribute articles, study announcements, and important information to our quarterly membership newsletter.
