Rob Wolf called the meeting to order at 12:00pm and welcomed everyone to the meeting.
As there was no official business to conduct and no announcements for the good of the order, Rob took the opportunity to thank the 2010-2011 executive board and all AFC members for their hard work and dedication during the previous year. Membership has increased by 50%, with more than 70% of the college’s employees participating in AFC. Many retirees responded to our membership drive by becoming lifetime members of AFC. AFC was able to respond to the many Legislative challenges that took place this year, and will continue to do so. Fundraising for our chapter was a success, with the chapter raising close to $2,000.00 through various sales and events.
Rob Wolf also took a moment to thank Dr. Dassance for his dedication to and continued support of AFC.
Rob Wolf and Tracy Dobbins presented the following AFC awards:
- AFC Green Award – Tommy Morelock
- AFC Faculty Award – Dennis Radice
- AFC Volunteer Award – Laverne Hunt, Horticulture
- AFC Board Member Award – Tracy Dobbins
- AFC Unsung Hero Award – Kimberley Smith
