Engage with FPA of Northeast Florida

Committees and committee volunteers are very important to the long-term health and viability of our organization and a great place to develop skills and connections that will further your career. Below is a list of current FPA of Northeast Florida Committees:

We are responsible for the educational content of our quarterly programs and roundtables. We research topics and speakers for all the chapter meetings. You’ll have opportunities to network with industry leaders, national experts and other members while shaping the education of our chapter. Where else will you have the opportunity to be familiar with the cutting edge issues of our industry and meet many of its leaders? Contact: Scott Snider at

Our largest program of the year fills an entire day with fresh speakers and topics. Symposium volunteers provide help both large and small – from developing the agenda to coordinating speaker logistics to helping facilitate on the event day. If you want to gain experience putting on events or simply love Symposium and want to be part of its success, sign up and volunteer with us! Contact: Bill O'Leary at

We are responsible for maintaining the health and fostering the growth of our chapter’s membership. The four areas on which we focus our attention are: Recruitment, Retention, Communication and Engagement. A strong membership contributes more energy, more value and more fun during our meetings. A strong membership allows us to advocate for our profession with a louder voice. A strong membership enables us to achieve more as a profession. Participating on the membership committee enables you to engage with the members of our chapter. Contact: Michelle Ash at

Our committee will help you hone your own public relations skills and offer opportunities for responding to media requests, public speaking and authoring opportunities.
