Chair Welcome Letter

Michael Wiseman Photo The Florida Rehabilitation Council (FRC) welcomes you to our website. The council’s primary purpose is to be a strategic partner with VR. Council members offer guidance and advocacy intended to improve VR services; we often vote as a council to forward recommendations for VR consideration on important or emerging issues.

I appreciate the opportunity to be selected by my peers to serve as the Chair of the Florida Rehabilitation Council (FRC) for 2017-18. This year’s focus will be on collaboration and service. FRC members are committed to serving individuals with disabilities to become successfully employed by creating a model advisory council that all Floridians will look to as an example of cooperation, collaboration and effective practices. We stand ready to continue to build on these traditions to serve you and we will strive to create and model the best practices and ideals of our Council to accomplish our mission and vision. Florida’s workforce needs you and we need you! We will continue to engage all stakeholders to work with us nationally and on the state levels to achieve our shared goals. By becoming involved and sharing your ideas, thoughts and recommendations, we can together help make Vocational Rehabilitation the recognized leader to help people with disabilities find and maintain employment and enhance their independence.

Respectfully,

Michael Wiseman
Florida Rehabilitation Council Chair
