Greetings FCDA Members!
It is such a pleasure to be assuming the office of President for the 2020-2021 fiscal year. I have big shoes to fill from my talented and accomplished predecessors, Renee Hudson, Stacy Van Horn and Carolyn Jones. I joined FCDA in 2017, as one of my initial professional steps upon relocating from Atlanta, GA to Jacksonville, FL. And, as a seasoned career coach, I immediately found a welcoming, energetic and highly skilled group of peers at my new professional home.
I extend my appreciation to Board members who completed their service on 06/30/20. Rachel Keener Killam, Chair of Membership, and Emily Flositz, Chair of Communications and Social Media, consistently shared their energy and creativity to enhance the level of service, support, and engagement to our members, while growing our numbers at FCDA. And Alex Stewart, Graduate Student Representative, showed FCDA that there is a tremendous skillset, optimism and potential being unleashed among emerging professionals.
