FACC Florida: Newsletter



We are happy to hear that one of our members, Wyncode, released recently their latest Job Placement Report and it shows that an amazing 90% of people who graduated from the Wyncode Academy in 2017 have found jobs! Our long time member, Almaco also had a lot to celebrate when it celebrated its 20th birthday in October!


We are having a joint Happy Hour event with the Greater Lantana Chamber of Commerce at Riggins Crabhouse in Lantana on Wednesday, November 7th. The event starts at 5:30pm and there is no cover fee. Attendees only pay for their drinks. So come on over and make some new contacts and meet some new people!


We have also started planning our Christmas party which will be held at the Mystical Mansion in Lake Worth. We are truly excited about hosting our Christmas party in such an amazing place. More information about the Christmas party is forthcoming, so stay tuned!


Have a great November everyone!


Yours truly,
