Dear New Board Member:

Congratulations on your appointment and welcome! Your service on the board is critical to our key business processes: licensing health care practitioners who meet minimum standards established by law; enforcing regulations of the practice; and keeping the public informed. We know that your service will come with personal sacrifice and for that we are most grateful.

To help you perform your duties, we have developed a board member training module that should answer many questions you have and, even more importantly, will help you fulfill your duties responsibly and within the parameters of Florida’s Sunshine Law. You have remarkable staff who are dedicated to making your experience rewarding. You also have board counsel who will provide legal guidance as you enter into deliberations that, at times, can be complex. Finally, you have an entire management team at your disposal if you find you need additional assistance. We are thrilled to have you help us fulfill our mission to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts.

Thank you again for your service. I look forward to meeting you in the near future.

Lucy C. Gee, MS, Division Director
