"The FAFCC Annual Conference delivers rich content and a great forum for networking with key resources throughout Florida. Over the last four years, the excellent programming and dash of fun have made this event a highlight for me as a new director in the nonprofit sector. Thank you, FAFCC, for the stellar support!"

Sandra L. Barry

Executive Director, Light of the World Clinic Inc.

"I have had the pleasure of attending many of the FAFCC Annual conferences. Since the conference was initiated many years ago, it has been wonderful to see our FAFCC Association grow. I throughly enjoyed participating in as many scheduled events as possible, with many of my FAFCC member colleagues. From the opening session, to the professional breakout sessions, hearing the keynote speaker, and closing with the final session all are great experiences."
