“Sankofa: Look to the Past to Claim Your Future”
Conference Past & Present
The Florida Caribbean Students’ Association (FCSA) meets each Fall and Spring semester at a statewide conference. Since the establishment of FCSA, they have hosted twenty-eight (28) conferences, aided the Caribbean and serviced more than 10,000 students, most of whom have become successful alumni. These conferences have been gathering places where students and alumni can network and build professional relationships. Attendees go to educational workshops and lectures that are proctored by prominent professionals.
At conference, the FCSA executive board meetings are held. More then twenty leaders from the Caribbean Students’ Associations (CSA) across Florida meet to converse the matters and the expectations of the Association.
This impending conference, themed “Look to the Past to Claim Your Future”, will be November 11-13, 2005 at Florida A & M University in Tallahassee. This conference is intended to provide attendees with the knowledge of their past enabling them to have a promising future. We will provide attendees with a social atmosphere allowing them to establish strong connections amongst themselves. This conference’s purpose is to educate participants about their history and reinforce the fact that we are all equally Caribbean.
Within the past we find the future and understand the present. We should reach back and gather the best of what our past has to teach us so that we can achieve our full potential as we move forward. To help attendees reach that potential, Florida A & M University plans to have plenty of educational and appealing events at this conference.
We approximate 800 students from the state of Florida to be in attendance at this conference. Florida A & M University would like to share their knowledge and resources with each participant, resulting in the nourishment of ones mind, heart and soul.
