President's Letter – Fall 2017

Categories: Letter from the FLAFCC President,

Dear FLAFCC Members and Visitors,

After making the tough decision to cancel the 2017 conference we are regrouping for 2018. Heartfelt thanks go out to our 2017 conference co-chairs, Deb Weaver and Wilhelmina Tribble. Many others put in countless hours including Sheba Katz, Mary Lou Wagstaff, Connie Byrd, Paul, and Maria Garcia, and Ann Luchini and Leslie Reithmiller of OSCA to plan the 2017 conference. Their efforts will pay off as we salvage work from 2017 and apply it to 2018.

My year as President is coming to a close. Though the conference cancellation was a disappointment, this year has been incredibly rewarding! We launched a new website, found our presence on social media, partnered with new family law groups, and forwarded our two primary initiatives: The Eldercaring Coordination project under the efforts of Linda Fieldstone and Judge Michelle Morley and the Family Court Intake Revision project spearheaded by Robert J. Merlin, Judge Sandy Karlan and Linda Fieldstone.

Please join us for the Annual Meeting which is open to all members. If you cannot be present I invite you to send me your ideas for growing and strengthening FLAFCC to make it your most useful professional organization. The Annual Meeting starts at 9 AM on December 2nd at The Florida Hotel and Conference Center, 1500 Sand Lake Rd, Orlando, FL 32809, 407-859-1500. The hotel is offering a special rate of $135/night for those attending the annual meeting.
See you in Orlando!!!

Sincerely, your president,
