2016 Conference Notice
Wednesday, May 18, 2016 03:56 PM

The 2016 FCCA/NCBC Joint Conference is sold out.  Registrations sold out in a matter of hours.  We have a wait list of members who have completed the registration process in case of a cancelation.  Our waiting list of members is maintained by the order of time we received registrations. If you would like to be added to an additional waitlist at this time, you may email waitlist2016@fcca.ws and we will compile a secondary waitlist in case we have more members that cannot attend. 

Due to the long list of FCCA members that want to attend, if a registered attendee cannot attend they must cancel their registration and members will not be allowed to substitute someone else in their place.  The replacement of attendees will go in the order that we received the registrations, insuring a fair registration process for all of our members.

We appreciate your understanding and your support for the FCCA.

FCCA Blood for Life Updates

Blood for Life Committee Updates

The Blood for Life Committee would like to invite our new and renewing FCCA members to take a few moments this season to donate blood.   The typical blood donation takes 10 to 12 minutes.   The American Red Cross indicates that in the United States, someone needs blood every two seconds. That 10 to 12 minutes of your time will make a valuable contribution to the life of a friend or a neighbor.

FCCA has many members who donate blood regularly, surely helping to save lives across the world.   Many districts hold annual blood drives, though you need not feel left out if your court does not hold one. Log sheets are provided on the FCCA website for individual recording of donations, as well as a group sheet to turn in to us at the end of the reporting period for 2016. The reporting period for this season is June 1, 2015 to June 30, 2016.   

During the FCCA Conference this August, there will be five drawings for $50 each. For each pint of blood and/or platelets that you donate, we will add your name to the drawing one time. The more you donate, the more chances you have to win. Please note that you need not be present at the DC conference to win the drawing.  We will also recognize the top three courts who have the most donations. To be eligible to win you must submit your log sheet to the Blood for Life Committee by July 15, 2016

There are plans currently underway to hold a Blood Drive on Tuesday, August 9, 2016* during the annual conference in Washington, DC.  The Blood Drive will be held at the conference hotel and coordinated with INOVA Blood Donor Services. INOVA supplies lifesaving blood and blood products to 24 different hospitals in Northern Virginia and the Washington, DC, metro area. They also work with national and international redistribution organizations to get blood where it's needed most. FCCA and NCBC attendees will be able to sign up directly on the 2016 Conference Registration form or during the conference.  Please contact Anne P. Stygles, DC Conference Blood Drive coordinator, as soon as possible if you would like to participate in the program.

The FCCA website is your source for up-to-date information.  Please feel free to contact Karen, Anne or one of the Blood for Life Committee members below for additional information. Thank you again for your time and lifesaving blood donations.
