Board of Directors

HCAF is governed by a volunteer, 17-member Board of Directors. Board members serve two-year terms and may serve up to two consecutive terms. The Executive Committee consists of the President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer, all of whom represent Florida's home health care industry in an at-large capacity. Additionally, 11 Directors represent home health providers by health care region, as established by the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration. The Board is rounded out by the Director of Private Duty, who represents private pay providers, and the Associate Director, who represents the vendor organizations that serve Florida home health care providers.

To contact a Board member, send us a message or call (850) 222-8967.
