President's Message


Dear NFCBA members,

I am excited to serve as your president for 2017-2018.  NFCBA strives to be a leading resource in North Florida for education, certification, and networking.  Through being responsive to our member needs, we create a network of energized and engaged professionals, both current and emerging.  We enhance the field of compensation & benefits by promoting professional development and leadership opportunities.

In 2016, your NFCBA Board and committee members engaged in a half day strategic planning session developing a strategic plan through 2018.  Our focus is on membership engagement, high quality programs, education and certification opportunities, community involvement, and website enhancements.  With this focus, be on the lookout for new and exciting developments that will benefit your NFCBA membership!

We will continue to support K9s for Warriors in 2017.  K9s for Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of military service post 9/11. Their goal is to give a new leash on life to rescue dogs and military heroes, empowering warriors to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.  If you would like to be a supporter, NFCBA accepts donations on your behalf and will match 100% of donations up to $1,000 annually. Visit our website to donate today!

Each year we strive to improve the level of service we provide to our members and this year is no exception.  We will continue to offer bi-monthly meetings with access to thought leadership experts on pertinent and timely topics related to compensation and benefits.  We also will offer at least two member socials.  There will be one education/certification opportunity in Jacksonville in October – T3 Quantitative Methods.  Remember you get a significant discount for these classes as a NFCBA member.  To receive the discount for 2017 World at Work events, you must be a paid member of NFCBA (you must update your full profile on to include your mailing address) and use the discount code LNPROMO2017 when checking out at the World at Work online store.  By using the discount code, a piece of the revenue goes directly back to NFCBA to be used towards member benefits!

We are always looking for succession within our Board.  If you are interested in volunteering for a Board or committee role, please see a current Board member and find out Board member benefits!

I am looking forward to meeting and working with as many of you as possible throughout the year.  Thank you in advance for your support and participation.
