AFC Retirees Committee Logo
The mission of the AFC Retirees Committee is to actively promote and support retired AFC members by facilitating communication, co-operation, professionalism, and camaraderie within the AFC and external community.


As retirees, we have a wealth of wisdom and experience gained through our many years of involvement and exposure during active employment. The following is a listing of objectives to pave the way:

AFC Retirees:

  • Provide fellowship opportunities for retirees at association events, focusing especially on Annual Conference.
  • Establish opportunities for recognition of retirees at the chapter, and statewide levels.
  • Organize to support legislative issues undertaken by the association of Florida College’s Legislative Committee as needed.  
  • Organize retirees for mentoring and resource-sharing as needed by chapters, districts and statewide.


  • Submit a list to the association of those retirees who should be recognized at Annual Conference as they move into this category.
  • Include retirees in more visible ways in their planning and activities.

Welcome from the Chair - coming soon!

Q1: What is the difference between a Community Circle and a Webpage?

  • A community circle is part of the AFC private online community, AFC Connections. It is used to connect with colleagues, post announcements and photos, and share information and best practices. You must be a member of AFC in order to be an active participant. It is a private interactive forum.
  • A webpage is a controlled and public setting where you can reach a wide audience. Only the webmaster may post information via an established template.
