“It has been a long road filled with many obstacles, but in the end the pathway is straight,” said Georgini.  “I relish the many friendships that over the years I have made, statewide and nationally, through the Community Action Network.  I have many wonderful memories; and, I thank God every day, for his grace is the only reason I am here.  I know no greater reward of leaving and knowing how many hundreds of thousands of lives I have helped change”.

Recently, the Mid Florida Community Services, Inc. (MFCS), Governing Board named Mat Kline, MFCS’ current Chief Operating Officer, as Georgini’s successor.  Georgini states: “I’ve been able to mentor Mat for over three years, and I am proud to say that I know no one who is more capable of carrying the torch and keeping the mission and values of Community Action in mind.”

“It’s an honor and pleasure to be given the opportunity to lead an established and well-respected agency, which has positively impacted many lives over the past 53 years. Michael has done a tremendous job of building organizational and community strength while navigating the ongoing challenges Community Action has faced since his inception into the network 44 years ago,” said Kline.  He goes on to say, “I look forward to what the future holds for Mid Florida Community Services and the Community Action Network, and I’ll commit to ensuring we do everything in our power, along with our partners, in collective effort to continue building bridges of opportunity and hope for the vulnerable citizens within our service region”.

Kline assumes the position of Chief Executive Officer on July 1, 2021.
