Engage the Issues at Connect Florida Day

If you’re an up-and-coming business or community leader and have some ideas about how to deal with the key issues impacting Florida, be sure to make arrangements to appear at Connect Florida Day at the Capitol later this month.

Connect Florida, a statewide group of young professionals, is currently inviting you to make the trip to Tallahassee for this event on Feb. 21 and 22. Young professionals from all over the state will have a chance to bend the ear of our top government leaders and talk about the weighty issues of the day and what they mean to Floridians.

“It is important that Florida’s emerging leaders understand our state’s dynamics, issues and opportunities because they ultimately impact our cities on a local level,” said Pete Zimek, Connect Florida chair. “Connect Florida Day at the Capitol offers some incredible programming that gives a well-rounded look at potential statewide changes.”

Confirmed speakers include Florida House of Representatives Speaker Will Weatherford, Mary Ellen Klas, capital bureau chief for the Miami Herald, and Tallahassee city commissioner Andrew Gillum. A special treat for attendees will be an in-depth tour of the Florida House Chamber.
