Next Meeting

The GCACE Board of Directors met and agreed it is in the best interest of our membership to suspend face-to-face training until further notice due to COVID-19. In an effort to continue with our mission to provide training to our members, we will forward links to free online training courses as we are made aware of, or invited to attend. Our goal is to keep our members current in their needed continuing education hours with FACE. I am very thankful to the FACE Chapters that have extended invitations to GCACE. I hope you have been able to take advantage of these informative training classes.

Members needing continuing education hours can take advantage of online opportunities by visiting  for more information. There is also free on-line training available through the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) Emergency Management Institute (EMI) Independent Study (IS) program. All FEMA Independent Study courses are pre-approved for F. A. C. E. recertification hours.  Here is a link to the website:

Once the courses are completed, and the certificate of completion is printed, please submit the certificate along with the Online Training Affidavit, to Susan Pruchnicki at UCF.  For more information on continuing education, please visit the FACE education webpage at

GCACE will be awarding scholarships to the FACE Virtual Conference, which will be held in June/July 2021. Scholarships will be awarded based on need and funds available.
