Dear Fellow School Counselors:
At this time of year, the Florida School Counselor Association (FSCA) solicits candidates for its Governing Board. Please help us identify the next generation of Florida's school counseling leadership by seeking an elected office or by encouraging those you believe to be talented leaders in your area to become candidates.
Elections will be held beginning the first of March and terms of office begin on July 1 and end on June 30. During this election cycle, FSCA seeks to fill five (5) positions, all of which are at-large Governing Board Director positions. Those candidates receiving the five highest number of votes are considered elected to the FSCA Governing Board and shall serve a three year term.
While there are some face-to-face meetings and responsibilities, most of the duties of board members are accomplished using technology -- telephone conference calls, SKYPE, or e-mail. At a minimum, all Governing Board members are expected to participate in all FSCA Board meetings and the Annual Convention. Some board members are also asked to represent FSCA at state or regional meetings, professional development, and other professional activities.
Members of the Governing Board do not receive any financial compensation for their service although they are reimbursed travel expenses and other costs according to FSCA policies on reimbursement. Those who have been involved have recognized the benefits of this leadership experience which includes networking, learning about school counseling issues, developing strategies to advocate for the profession, collegiality, and excellent professional and personal development.
FSCA makes every attempt to schedule travel during weekends to minimize board members' time away from school.
Those interested in becoming a member of the FSCA Board of Directors should complete the Nominations and Elections packet (see below)
