Greetings friends! I don’t know about you but Daylight Savings came at a much needed time. I have been looking for any extra time in my day and week to invest in my family, my colleagues and my students. In times like these I find it important to remember that…
- We have all been given the same amount of time.
- We have also been given an opportunity to invest our attention in various people, processes and pursuits.
- What we invest our time, talent and treasure in reflect our values and comes to fill our lives.
The members of the Florida Association of Colleges and Employers have made an important investment in me, personally and professionally. Through this association I have had opportunities to hear about innovative approaches as I listen to others describe how career development and university relations are changing “on the fly.” Unique to this group, professionals from a broad spectrum of higher education institutions and industries are consistently generous to offer their best thinking and to identify their missteps so that a colleague will have a greater opportunity to succeed. Lastly, Florida ACE has provided me several friends; not mere acquaintances or professional network. These are people that pick the phone up when you call and are genuinely interested in hearing an update or helping with a request.
John Sheehy (Stetson) and I are leading the President’s Council committee for this year’s Conference. The President’s Council serves an important role within our Association. Not only does it provide organizations, institutions, vendors and individuals an opportunity to express their sustained commitment to this strong professional group by sponsoring aspects of our Conference, the President’s Council partners with these supporters to amplify their brand amongst the Association membership.
After serving on the Board this past year, I have a much fuller understanding about what goes into hosting a great Annual Conference. In addition to working diligently to select strong venues and creatively to attract first-tier keynote speakers, feeding and providing audio/visual services for our attendees requires a good deal of support. We are asking you to please consider supporting the Florida Association of Colleges and Employers through the President’s Council. Our sponsorship levels are shared below in a table.
