The following FCCMA members are currently in transition. Please take a minute to show your support by either emailing or phoning the MITs in your district. A phone call or an email can go a long way to help someone who is temporarily out of work. You can also help if you have any job opportunities or special projects available for which one of our MITs may be qualified.

With the current technology, the project could even be done from the MIT’s home. Some of the Members-in-Transition have provided their resumes and they are linked to the profiles. The MITs have provided their areas of expertise to help you identify where they can assist in your organization.

Also, please keep your FCCMA staff informed of any FCCMA members who may be eligible for MIT status. You can email Carol Russell at
