The Florida Association for Constitutional Officers (FACO) was created in 2016 to represent the
interests and protect the independence of clerks of court, comptrollers, property appraisers,
sheriffs, supervisors of elections and tax collectors across Florida through advocacy, education
and litigation support.
FACO’s general purpose for which it is organized includes:
- Provide a not-for-profit, public purpose organization to serve as an instrumentality of,
and an agent for, elected or appointed county constitutional officers in the State of
Florida, as described in Article VIII, Section 1(d) of the Florida Constitution; and
- Provide a non-political, non-partisan organization to aid and assist county constitutional
officers in the State of Florida in carrying out their public purpose and functions; and
- Advocate for and protect the independence of county constitutional officers in
accordance with the Florida Constitution and Florida Statutes; and
- Work in cooperation with public officials, public organizations, private citizens and
private organizations at the national, state and local levels to stimulate and encourage
the development of dialog and programs in furtherance of FACO’s mission.
