Jay K. Morgan Distinguished Senior Professional Award
Determined by the FASC Leadership Team, this honor is bestowed on an individual who has shown outstanding dedication and service to Florida senior centers. The first recipient of the award was Jay K. Morgan in August 2012 at the Florida Council on Aging Conference. The 2018 recipient is Pat O'Connell of the St. John's County Council on Aging. For more information about Ms. O'Connell or the award, please see the award announcement.
Annual Training Workshops - Reduced Rate w/ Membership
By far the best training opportunity in Florida for those who work within senior centers. Very affordable and great information is shared over a Thursday afternoon and Friday morning in early February of each year. The best part is the opportunity to network with others who work within the senior center system. Members receive reduced rates for workshop, dinner, and hotel reservations.
Eligibility for Florence R. Goldmann Senior Center Award
The Florence R. Goldmann Award was established in 1993 as a tribute to Flo Goldmann, FASC’s first president. It is awarded to an outstanding Senior Center of the Year whose FASC membership is current. This recognition of excellence is presented during the Florida Conference on Aging annually.

Professional Leadership & Networking

Advocacy for Senior Centers and Services
Members benefit from the leadership FASC provides in representing the interest of and advocating for seniors and the aging services network. FASC coordinates and mobilizes action to improve the economic security and health of seniors and works with Florida lawmakers to protect and strengthen senior centers.
Mentors for National Accreditation
Among FASC members you will find senior center professionals who have completed the accreditation process and can share their experiences. Many FASC leaders serve on National Institute of Senior Centers (NISC) committees and boards. FASC also has a committee of leaders who are trained to mentor senior centers going through the accreditation process.
Public Relations Strategies
Strategic use of public relations, publicity and social media techniques are important in today’s world, and very important in getting the word out about our senior centers. Through specially designed opportunities FASC members are able to discuss and share public relations strategies that are being used across Florida senior centers.
