Message from the Executive Director- Mr. Andy Chiles

It’s hard to believe we’re 3/4ths of the way to finishing another school year. I hope everyone had a successful winter campaign for your athletic department and spring sports are off to a great start. As we move into the last 9 weeks of the school year, I’m excited to share that this year’s FIAAA State Conference is quickly approaching.

Attending the FIAAA conference provides us, as Athletic Administrators and leaders of our schools and community, an opportunity to catch up with colleagues and friends, participate in professional development opportunities and hopefully allows us to find time to unwind a little from the day to day grind of running successful athletic programs.

Once again, Val Miyares, our President-Elect and your FIAAA Board of Directors have worked extremely hard on hammering out the details and logistics of the conference this year. This year’s conference will be held for the first time at the Embassy Suites in Lake Buena Vista. It will also have a slightly different format as in previous years. I believe the conference once again provides multiple learning opportunities with our LTI course offerings and great breakout sessions.

The FHSAA will have multiple sessions sharing important information and updates on all the potential changes happening in the state. In addition to the above, our FIAAA Conference will once again provide FHSAA compliance seminar credit for the Athletic Administrators in Sections 1 and 3. The conference will again be highlighted with our FIAAA Awards Banquet and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony were we recognize some of our colleagues that have made outstanding contributions to interscholastic athletics in our state.

Conference registration is now open and all information related to the conference can be found on our FIAAA website.

As we head down the home stretch, I wish everyone great success finishing up the school year. Please remember the FIAAA is your professional association and if you ever need anything or have any questions please feel free to contact myself, your District Director or any member of your Board of Directors. I wish everyone the best of luck, stay safe and I look forward to seeing everyone at the Conference in May.
