Advocacy in AFC
Advocacy on behalf of the AFC membership is one of the primary activities of the Association. 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.
