2019 Legislative Update: Political Best Practices

This session will review what we can see as of today on the horizon for CRAs in the 2019 Florida Legislative Session. Our FRA lobbyists and members will share some tips on how to be e ective at home and at the capitol. Come ready with your questions and comments, war stories, and successes. The slogan for the 2018 session of the FRA was “Redevelop- ment Works”. We have to convince so many people that is does work LOCALLY. Do you know how to “keep it local” in your community, before something becomes an issue in the hallowed halls of the state houses? This is a not-to-be- missed meeting about how you can stay in the know and assist in the FRA legislative effort.

Speaker: William J. Peebles, P.A., Peebles Smith & Matthews, and FRA Legislative Lobbyist
