More than 220 active Gator Club® and Affiliate Group members and University of
Florida Alumni Association Board Members from around the nation came to
Gainesville between Thursday, August 29 and Saturday, August 31 as part of the
UFAA’s annual conference. This year’s theme of Florida Forward focused the
Alumni Association members’ attention on the University of Florida’s preeminence
designation and journey to the Top Ten, and the specific ways it would benefit
UF alumni around the country.
In addition to looking to the future, attendees also recognized the many Gator

The Clubbie Awards, which recognize Gators who have gone above and beyond in
strengthening the Gator Nation over the past year. Twenty-one Gator Clubs® and
six individuals received Clubbies. You can see the entire list of Clubbie Award
