Hard Work Pays Off
ow, what a tremendous 2016 Legislative Days we had! This event keeps
getting better and better each year. It was great seeing those FPMA
members who attended this successful event and I was proud of everything we accomplished in such a short amount of time. Between spending time
with Gov. Rick Scott and legislative leaders to a great skeet shoot event and hearing
about the Congressional races that will impact our state's political landscape, this
year's event had something for everyone. I want to thank FPMA Executive Director
Ned Bowman and Joanna Wolff for their incredible efforts in coordinating the event
for our members. The entire event was flawless, but I know it's because of the hard
work and dedication that Ned and Joanna put in behind-the-scenes for the past few
months in order to pull it off.
During Legislative Days, I was honored to chair my first FPMA board meeting where
the future of the organization was discussed and plans for upcoming events such as
the 2016 Sunshine EXPO were presented. Speaking of the EXPO, if you're an exhibitor
looking to host a booth, please contact Joanna (Joanna@fpma.org or 850.877.5178)
to reserve one today as they are going fast and you don't want to be left out of the
biggest industry event in Florida! Last year we had more than 2,000 attendees and 350
exhibit booths. We also have some exciting additions to this year's event that we'll be
announcing in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for those!
Lastly, I want to thank our Legislative Days sponsors who are all featured on page 8.
Hosting Legislative Days each year wouldn't be possible without their financial support
and commitment, and we appreciate them seeing such great value and exposure in
sponsoring this event. ●
