The Florida Afterschool Network is excited to announce that our organization will partner with the Florida Cable Telecommunications Association (FCTA) on a cable special highlighting children’s issues.
The special will be unique in that it will focus on how we can navigate kids issues through a legislative session that again is faced with large budget deficits. The cable special is the brainchild of FAN Board member Steve Wilkerson, President and CEO, FCTA, and will be directed by Janice Caluda, Executive Vice President, FCTA.
The format is a panel discussion moderated by Steve, and will feature panelists: Jennifer Carroll (Florida Lieutenant Governor), David Lawrence (FAN Panel of Champion member, retired publisher of the Miami Herald and President of the Children’s Movement), Michael Lannon (FAN Board member and Superintendent of Schools St. Lucie County) and Brittany Birken (CEO the Florida Children’s Council).
The special will be taped on Monday, December 12th and will be aired prior to and during the coming legislative session. FAN is very proud and excited to partner with Florida Cable on this important project. We at FAN offer our sincere thanks to Steve, Janice and the entire FCTA team and to the wonderful panel members.
