Dear FloridaACE Members:
We are looking forward to this year’s annual conference, to be held in June 2015 in St. Augustine, Florida! This year we are looking to increase our vendor participation. We have received participation from vendors such as College Central Network and Career Fair Plus in recent years and look forward to increasing participation in this year’s 50th anniversary event! This is an opportunity to state which vendors you would like to see at this year’s event. Vendors will be able to:
- Spotlight their organization during the annual Vendor Spotlight.
- Reach their target audience.
- Meet with key decision-makers face-to-face.
- Make valuable contacts.
- Build brand and name recognition.
- Demonstrate their products and services.
If you know of vendors personally who would like to participate, please have them contact Stacy Lanigan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 561-237-7263. They may also register at http://www.florida-ace.org/vendors.
Tracy Joinson, Florida Association of Colleges and Employers
2014 Award Winners
We are seeking nominations for three of our organization’s prestigious awards:
John T. Brownlee Leadership Award – This award was established by the Florida Association of Colleges & Employers in recognition of John T. Brownlee’s contribution and tireless efforts on behalf of the organization. In John’s years (1977-1986) of involvement with FloridaACE, he served as a board member and as president. He brought enormous energy and enthusiasm to the organization and this award serves as an ongoing memorial in recognition of his dedication and commitment.
Student of the Year Award – Each year, FloridaACE presents an award to a deserving student who has demonstrated exceptional achievement in the field of experiential learning. Any student of a 2 or 4 year Florida higher education institution may be nominated for this award.
New Member Award – The goal of this award is to recognize a new member who is helping to keep FloridaACE strong by volunteering for committees and/or special projects.
Please visit www.florida-ace.org/awards for eligibility criteria, nominating procedure and basis for selection. Winners will be announced at the annual conference during the Awards luncheon.
Submission deadline is March 3, 2015.
