Got Questions?

What happened to the Chicagoland Florida College Booster Club (CFCBC)?
It was decided in a series of Booster club meetings to dissolve the existing club and form the Chicagoland chapter of the Hutchinson Bell

What's the Hutchinson Bell?
The Hutchinson Bell is Florida College’s alumni and friends’ association which exists to serve members by allowing them to connect, communicate and cultivate relationships with one another and the college which brought them together.
 
So did we just change names?
No, the club, before dissolving, chose a board of directors who will serve as the governing body of the Chicagoland Chapter of the Hutchinson Bell.

What will the board do?
The board has elected new officers and will have meetings throughout the year to make decisions about the chapter’s activities and endeavors.

Does this mean there are no more meetings like we used to have?
Yes and no. Anyone who is a member of the chapter is welcome to attend the board meetings to offer input and bring suggestions. There will also be an annual meeting where new board members will be nominated and elected by the members at large, however, the regular board meetings will not be tied to a social function as it has been in the past.

How do I find out about the meetings?
Meetings will be posted on the website, and emails will be sent out to the membership at large.

How do I offer suggestions and input if I'm not able to attend a meeting?
You can contact any of the board members or officers with questions, suggestions or other input.

So, if I'm not an officer or a board member how else can I be involved in the club?
The board members and officers will always be looking for volunteers to head committees, work on committees and generally lend a helping hand. We strongly encourage members at large to stay involved in the chapter, with a goal of serving and, if interested, pursue a role as board member or officer in the future. 

Are there any things I can help with right now?
Yes, definitely. The board is currently looking for members who are capable at website design and other social media platforms to help on our Communication Committee. If you or someone you know of is interested in helping in this way, they should contact the Communication Committee chair, Mason Venuso.

We are also looking for people interested in driving prospective students down to the Falcon Days events on the FC campus. You can contact Laura Alvarez if you would like more information about that.

Am I a current member of the Chicagoland Chapter of The Hutchinson Bell?
In the left column is a list of the people from our area that as of January 11 2018 have signed up as members. If you believe you are a member, but are not on that list, or if you want help in joining the Chicagoland Chapter of The Hutchinson Bell, contact Shannon Sink at billshan0592@att.net. When joining make sure that you choose to be affiliated with the Chicagoland Chapter.

NOTE: Some people who have been recurring members in the past may assume their memberships have renewed automatically. However, it is necessary to renew mannually now that our Booster Club has joined The Hutchinson Bell. See next question below.

How do I become a member of The Chicagoland Chapter of the Hutchinson Bell?
By paying annual dues of $35 (for family) or $25 (for individuals) to The Hutchinson Bell, you automatically are able to be a member of a local chapter. You can go to thehutchinsonbell.com to sign up.


Still have questions?
Feel free to contact our President, Vice President or one of the Board Members. (See list in left column)
