Friends of White Flint Summary

A member of the White Flint Steering Committee raised a question about participating in the FLOG vs. joining Friends of White Flint. Here is my response:

FoWF is a Maryland non-profit organization, which I started in September 2007. It is separate from the Planning Board’s White Flint Steering Committee. It has an all-volunteer Board of Directors consisting of Evan Goldman, Suzanne Hudson, Ken Hurdle, Greg Trimmer, and me. Evan, Suzanne and I are co-Chairs.

As explained on our website, www.friendsofwhiteflint.org, FoWF is dedicated to implementing the Goal and Vision adopted by the Advisory Group. As a non-governmental organization, FoWF supplements the work of the new Steering Committee in educating the public and promoting green, transit-oriented improvements in the White Flint area.

FoWF’s biggest activity at the moment is the FLOG – the Friends of White Flint Blog. You can read the FLOG without joining it, but to post or comment you will need to register. Last I checked, on some days, the FLOG gets over 60 users. You can access the FLOG through the FoWF website: www.friendsofwhiteflint.org, or you can bookmark it and go directly once you have read the simple Rules. Instructions for participating are listed on the website.

Anyone can join Friends of White Flint as a “Friend.” Being a Friend is different from participating in the FLOG, and registering for the FLOG does not make you a Friend. Joining as a Friend is currently free, but we may ask for contributions later. To join as a Friend, just contact me or any of the Directors. The biggest advantage of being a Friend is that your FLOG status is upgraded so a moderator does not need to approve your posts, but we extend the same courtesy to all members of the Steering Committee, whether or not they join FoWF as Friends.
