AFC Chapter Meeting, Nov. 19
November 19, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
Join us for the next AFC Ocala Chapter meeting on Tuesday, Nov.19, from 12:30-1:30 p.m., in the Bryant Student Union, Room 203; at the Citrus Campus in the Learning and Conference Center, Room 105; and on the Levy Campus, Room 105. Refreshments will be served.
Hear from CF Governmental Relations Director Jessica Kummerle on your AFC advocacy activities. The AFC Legislative Committee comprises 18 members, all of whom serve as their college’s registered lobbyist. Moreover, the Association’s Policy and Advocacy Committee comprises all 28 presidents. Collectively, and in coordination with the Division of Florida Colleges, policy issues are prioritized and advocated under the Association umbrella. The AFC pays particular attention to matters that could directly impact its individual members and mobilizes the membership through a series of educational meetings and informative publications. Along with advocating for the annual system budget and substantive policy issues, the AFC monitors retirement, employee benefits, and related personnel issues.
The Legislative Committee covers a myriad of issues. Policy issues monitored directly on behalf of AFC members include employee benefit areas such as:
• Florida Retirement System
• Deferred Retirement Option Program (DROP)
• Sick leave and Annual Leave
• Continuing Contracts and Tenure
• Academic Freedom and Speech.
