The Board of Directors of FLAFCC invites applications or nominations for new directors. Board members are elected at the Annual Meeting in December and serve a three-year term with the option to serve for multiple terms. FLAFCC Officers (President, etc.) are selected from the Board.

The duties of a board member include attendance on monthly Board Meeting calls and at in-person Board Meetings (typically once at year at the Annual conference). Board Meeting calls occur on the last Tuesday of the month at 8:00AM. Board members are also expected to serve on committees that support the FLAFCC mission such as conference committees, membership committees, website/news committees and special projects committees. Committee membership is likely to involve extra phone conferences and/or meetings.

We seek diversity of every kind when electing board members. We are particularly dedicated to geographical diversity so that the Board represents all of Florida. You must be an AFCC/FLAFCC member to be elected to the Board of Directors. If you are interested in being a board member or would like to nominate someone, please contact the Immediate Past President and Chair of the Nominating Committee, Jill Sanders at
