Pasco-Hernando State College District Board of Trustee members attended the annual Association of Florida Colleges (AFC) Trustee Legislative Conference in Tallahassee on February 3 and 4. While in Tallahassee, PHSC trustees and Katherine Johnson, Ed.D., PHSC President, attended a reception at the Governor’s Mansion.
The AFC Trustee Legislative Conference provides college trustees the opportunity to learn more about the Florida College System legislative budget request and other substantive issues being monitored in the legislature. Discussions and presentations were led by college leaders from across the state including the Chancellor of the Florida College System, and the chairs of the AFC Trustees’ Commission, Council of Presidents, Policy and Advocacy Committee and AFC Legislative Committee. Elected legislative leadership in both the Florida House and Senate also addressed the group.
