The annual awards celebration is a night honoring the hard work, dedication, heart and tireless commitment of the men and women who work every day on behalf of Florida’s abused, abandoned, neglected and at-risk children and youth.

This year’s awards celebration is open to conference attendees, guests, board members, legislators, and other community members who want the attend the celebration but aren’t registered to attend the conference. Community members are able to purchase single tickets for this special event on the general registration page here.

Join us for a cocktail hour at 5:00 p.m. where attendees will have the opportunity to meet with presenters as well as network with colleagues. The event will include a cash bar and will be held in the Grand Ballroom.

As a part of a special finale performance, we are inviting all conference attendees to submit a photo holding their “This is Me” sign. We think that having you submit your own would add to our finale!

At FCC, we recognize the larger role we all play not only with in the child welfare system, but within our #CommunityOfCare as a whole. That includes all of the various roles and interests that individuals within our member organizations have outside of their job title.

We would like to recognize these interests and identities by having attendees fill out their “This is Me” sign!

Simply print your sign, and fill in what makes you “you.” This can be anything from being a foster parent, volunteer, mother, father, aunt, singer, jokester, an advocate, or anything else you are proud to be! We want to know what makes all of our attendees unique, and we are excited to display these photos as we celebrate our community!

Download the sign here.

Email your photo to [email protected] no later than July 19th.
