Thank you to FCS MOVES Season 1 Guest Speakers


A year ago, the FCS was faced with a crisis: the pandemic had eradicated our ability to stage in-person events. How could our 50+ year old organization survive, let alone continue to support our mission of making regular donations to children’s charities?

In response, we re-imagined our content offering and launched a new Members-Only Virtual Event Series (FCS MOVES). But people would only enroll to be members if we could deliver great content!

Our Programming Committee, led by John McCormick, reached out to old and new friends of the FCS, and invited them to be part of FCS MOVES. We will always be grateful to these 32 senior marketing executives who agreed to share their time and talent with our membership, enhancing every online event with their inspirational words, business insights, and genuine good nature.

In addition to helping grow our membership with 40 brand new corporate memberships, MOVES resulted in the FCS donating $32,000 to 22 children's charities, each selected by one of our speakers.  On behalf of these charities, we offer another THANK YOU!
