We are proud to recognize those schools that have joined the PAC for 2010, and encourage all of you to consider becoming members. The PAC dues are used to support candidates that support us – Florida’s private postsecondary schools. Over the last two years we have made much progress in the state Legislature, and we are continuing to tell our story to Representatives, Senators, and regulatory bodies.
