AFC Retirees Committee Logo
The mission of the Retirees Committee is to represent the interests of Florida College System retirees.


WHAT WE DO / WHO WE ARE

As retirees, we have a wealth of wisdom and experience gained through our many years of involvement and exposure during active employment. The following is a listing of objectives to pave the way:

AFC Retirees:

  • Provide fellowship opportunities for retirees at association events, focusing especially on Annual Conference.
  • Establish opportunities for recognition of retirees at the chapter, and statewide levels.
  • Organize to support legislative issues undertaken by the association of Florida College’s Legislative Committee as needed.  
  • Organize retirees for mentoring and resource-sharing as needed by chapters, districts and statewide.


Chapters:

  • Submit a list to the association of those retirees who should be recognized at Annual Conference as they move into this category.
  • Include retirees in more visible ways in their planning and activities.
