As many of you are probably saying to yourselves, and let me echo your sentiment in asking, “where has this year gone?,” I hope that all of you are finding some time in what typically is a very busy period for all of us, to reflect upon this year and celebrate the many personal and professional successes in our lives.
It’s hard to believe we are already in the second half of 2014. As the summer winds down and winter begins to approach us, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on what a great year it has already been. Our dedicated and talented team of board member and volunteers has delivered yet another successful and fun annual conference! Our strong set of keynote speakers gave us a lot to take away for own professional development and the beautiful beach scene in Melbourne provided plenty of fun and relaxing memories.
I am extremely excited about what this year’s conference will bring since we are celebrating 50 years in a historic location, St. Augustine! I encourage everyone to get involved with conference planning by joining a committee of your choice. Not only does this give you direct input on the details of the conference, it also offers you the chance to network with colleagues and make some great friends. If there is anything you feel we can do to make your Florida ACE membership more impactful, don’t hesitate to contact a board member with your ideas. We are always looking for ways to improve the membership experience.
Finally, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as President this year. I am looking forward to continuing to work with such a talented group of professionals and the opportunities for professional development for all of us. Here’s to an exciting and productive year!
Happy 50th Anniversary, Florida Association of Colleges & Employers!
