As another year comes quickly to an end, I reflect on the many successes of our association. Our members have been active and engaged within their committees as well as within their cities and counties. Our association remains financially solid and has seen strong overall member retention. I am honored to serve as President and work alongside you to achieve the association’s goals on behalf of the membership.
If you are thinking about serving on the FCCMA Board, now is the time to act. FCCMA has begun its 2020 elections canvassing. Full members with at least three years of membership are eligible to run for the FCCMA Board as a district director or an at-large director.
FCCMA has also begun canvassing for secretary-treasurer. To be eligible, you must currently be serving as the full-time administrative head of a Florida local government or be appointed by the administrative head as having general administrative responsibilities and must have served previously on the board for at least 24 months. If you are interested in the secretary/treasurer position, this is a four-year commitment; the secretary/treasurer serves one year in that capacity and then one year in each of the following positions: president-elect, president and past president.
FCCMA is a great association and it needs members like you who are willing to give your time and talent to governing the association. There are only six board meetings a year, two of them are held at conference, and one meeting is held by conference call. You will also be asked to serve on a committee while on the Board. It takes a little time and commitment, but it is so worthwhile.
Serving on the Board is a great way to give back to the association. I hope you will consider running for the board.
If you have any questions, please contact me or FCCMA staff.
