The F.A.C.E. Board of Directors and our partners at the Institute of Government/University of Central Florida continue to monitor Coronavirus (COVID-19). In three short months the Board of Directors and Committees assessed our position, addressed issues and implemented change to ensure the Foundation for the Future is secure. The Board began holding virtual meetings to address all the issues affecting our organization and members. As a result we held the first ever virtual conference which was a resounding success. This experiences has opened a path for us to hold both in-person and virtual training opportunities in the future.
The Board and IOG staff have been receiving inquiries about when face to face presentation of certification courses will begin again. During the July 21, 2020 Board Meeting this topic was presented and discussed at length. The overall opinion is that with more than 10,000 new cases in Florida daily, provisions of the Emergency Declaration and Orders must remain in place. By Consensus of the Board, it was determined we do not support face to face learning at this time. In late August a request to hold a Chapter Annual Training face to face utilizing recommended safety measures was received. Although cases appear to be reluctantly receding, there are communities delaying entering into Phase 2 and some Phase 2 communities are pulling back to phase 1, particularly during the tentative re-opening of schools and universities. We remain in accord, we cannot support face to face learning at this time. This item will remain on each Board Meeting Agenda until it is determined safe to return to the classroom. In the meantime, members needing continuing education hours can take advantage of online opportunities by visiting http://face-online.org/education/webinars for more information. We encourage each Chapter to investigate virtual platforms that integrate attendance tracking for CEH Training. Please continue to check our home page for updates on the status of in-person learning. Thank you for all that you do to serve your communities. Stay Safe and Well!
The next Board of Directors meeting will be held as follows:
November 5, 2020 at 09:30 a.m.
*Members are invited and encouraged to attend. Contact President Cindy Drake at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the meeting link.
