About FX

The Freelance Exchange of Kansas City (FX) began in 2003 as an idea to bring like-minded professionals together to exchange ideas and business strategies. As advertising/marketing freelancers, we all often face similar situations and hurdles. FX brings in speakers, hosts roundtable discussions, and provides educational workshops so that our members can learn from seasoned pros, share best practices, find mentors, and mentor others. We learn from each other, and in turn, learn to grow our businesses.

Since its founding, our nonprofit organization has also grown to help those looking to hire freelance talent. Advertising agencies, design studios, large corporations, media outlets, and small businesses come to FX looking for professionals to meet their communications needs. And we give them the tools to find the right resources, including this handy website, complete with a searchable database and tips, a printed member directory, and an annual Portfolio Showcase that allows seekers to browse some of the city’s best talent conveniently and efficiently—all under one roof, all at one time.

The Freelance Exchange of Kansas City is a not-for-profit 501(c)6 organization incorporated in the
state of Kansas, and registered in both Missouri and Kansas.
