Market Affairs Specialist, Florida Blue

Cat Dececco

Cat DeCecco, market affairs specialist for Florida Blue, serves as chair of the Central Florida Young Professionals Advisory Council (YPAC)—a group of more than 50 young professionals under the age of 32 that come together every two months to hear from leaders in the community and discuss the challenges facing Central Florida. Investors in the Central Florida Partnership have the opportunity to select one employee to represent their organization at YPAC meetings.

Listening carefully to the voices of young professionals, especially when it comes to key community issues, helps us better frame the public policy debate across the Central Florida region. We remain committed to an issue-driven advisory body; one that does not circumvent existing groups and organizations of young professionals. In fact, our goal is to complement the many efforts that are already in place and currently underway.

By capitalizing on the momentum of growing regional, state and national issues, YPAC is engaging the advice and counsel of young professionals in matters of consequence to our family of communities.

“I am honored to chair and participate in the 2014-2015 Central Florida Young Professionals Advisory Council,” said DeCecco. “YPAC is a great way to engage with our peers and serve as the voice of the young professional leaders in the Central Florida community.”
