We have finished with our Board of Directors Representation and Eligibility Policies, which you can see below. 

Board Representation Policy Statement

The Florida Association of Community Corrections (FACC) is committed to diversity in all aspect of its business and activities and at all levels, including its Board of Directors.  FACC’s Board of Directors highly value diversity and inclusion and supports the election and appointment of diverse candidates to the Board.  The Board believes that it fulfills its mission by drawing on the skills, talents, and perspectives of a broader and more diverse range of leaders.  The Board believes that having representation of diverse gender, race, ethnicity, age, beliefs, along with varied skills and experiences, contributes to a balanced and effective Board.  The Board is committed to fostering an inclusive culture where all board members are encouraged to bring their perspectives and life experiences to their board service.  

Additionally, the Board strives to have representation from all levels of Florida’s community corrections system.  It’s the Board’s goal to have all judicial circuits represented and to have an equal, fair, and consistent process of representation at all levels from statewide to county departments, public to private entities, and departments representing large metropolitan areas to those representing smaller rural communities. It is the Board’s belief that diversity and inclusion will leave the Board well positioned to address the changing needs of community corrections across the state.
