The Florida Consortium of Clinical Educators (FCCE) recently voted to create Clinical and Academic Co-Chair positions for the executive committee and the amended bylaws were approved by the FPTA Board of Directors. The result is leadership that reflects the make-up of the FCCE and ensures active representation for the clinical community.

A simple majority will elect officers. No two officers will be elected from the same school/clinical site. Elections shall be on the following cycle:
