Despite the rain, beautiful Key West was awesome. Hotel accommodations and staff were tremendously supportive as were our local military installations.
Now, the big announcement:

Please take the time to congratulate this new leadership team and provide them the same great support you provided me during the past two years. I am excited about taking our Association to the next level with them.
With Aaron Hall moving into the Vice President position, this provides an opportunity for someone to take over the Secretary duties until the next election.

Thanks to everyone who came out for the 2017 FLA ACME Workshop at Patrick AFB. And an extra special thanks to our sponsors!

FL-ACME supports The National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) to better serve our military students pursuing online education. Once Florida passes legislation to participate in NC-SARA, Florida will establish a streamlined state level reciprocity process for all Florida higher educational institutions. This will ensure Florida students can continue their educational pursuits with their current school out of state, while ensuring institutions are in compliance with all state regulatory requirements.
FL-ACME asks that all institutions interested in the adoption of NC-SARA share the attached talking points and links to the current House and Senate bills. Senate Bill 668 has been filed and the House companion is HB 859.
