FRPA Journal - Fall 2016 - 9

cultural divides in your community? All of these concepts will be addressed this year. We will also focus on expanding knowledge in the area of environmental sustainability. A track of educational sessions at the 2017 Annual Conference will reinforce efforts and initiatives that should be taking place around the state to not only protect our existing natural resources, but also plan for a sustainable environment for the future, with attention towards water conservation and resources and sea level rise. Are we planning for those issues now before we arrive at that day in the near future when they are at a critical stage? What role do we play in that? Resources will be shared by communities that are taking action now to prepare for their sustainable future. We will continue our efforts to partner with organizations such as IFAS, the Urban Forestry Council, the Florida Department of Health, the Florida Department of Agriculture, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and others who share our vision for a brighter and better Florida. Exciting work ahead, and we invite you to be a part of the journey. There is some contribution you can make. Not every initiative requires a lengthy time commitment.
