Please join us in congratulating James Acosta, F.A.C.E. Treasurer and St. Johns County Code Enforcement Manager, in his retirement! James joined F.A.C.E. in April 2000 and earned his CEP in December 2014. After serving on various committees, he was elected as Treasurer in 2009 and served 4 terms until 2013. He was appointed by the Board, in late 2013, to serve out the remainder of the year as Treasurer, when the elected Treasurer was unable to finish the term. In 2014 he was re-elected as Treasurer and served another 4 terms ending in June at this year’s conference.
Under his watchful eye, F.A.C.E. has been financially secure and able to provide members with quality education and training. “Many Board members will tell you that James will say no to spending any money, but the truth is he would approve any budgeted item,” says Past President Mark Caskie. During his tenure F.A.C.E reduced costs to the membership and increased revenue from our Training Institutions. James also served on the Board of Directors for the American Association of Code Enforcement.
James wasn’t just the F.A.C.E. Treasurer, but more than that he has been a mentor and friend to the many Board Members he has served with and to his co-workers in St. Johns County. As one of those colleagues, Lori Troxel, so eloquently expressed “What an amazing man! He has been a great leader, a powerful mentor, but most of all he was a phenomenal friend to us all.”
