Join us at the AFC Family Reunion on November 15-18, 2022

This November, the Association of Florida Colleges will reunite at its first in-person Annual Meeting & Conference in two years. Covid -19 upended education as we knew it, disrupting all over lives. We learned to adapt to increased workloads, budget cuts, staffing shortages, new virtual modalities, and enrollment challenges amidst the evolving paradigm shift in higher education. We learned, we innovated, and we transformed.

Join us as we convene members, colleagues, and higher education industry leaders at “The Family Reunion.” We will celebrate and recognize our best and brightest while sharing lessons learned, highlighting best practices, and empowering college leaders to respond to the challenges ahead for our institutions and the students we serve.

The AFC’s Legacy is rooted deep and wide. We invite you to join us at “The Family Reunion” where we will come together again.
