One of the many member benefits our associate members receive is they are listed in the associate member directory on our website. Members can be searched by company name or by a product / service. The FAPSC office receives calls daily asking for consultants, advertising, training providers, and CPA's just to name a few. We always refer the calls to the associate member directory. However, If your company is not listed through our product / service search you may be missing out on alot of potential business. Take a moment and visit the associate member directory and contact Wanda Taylor (850) 577-3139 or via email Wanda@FAPSC.org if your company is not listed properly through this search. We don't want any of our members missing out on any opportunties.
