2016 WATER FORUM
The 7th Annual Florida Water Forum, presented by Associated Industries of Florida, will bring together Florida’s policy leaders in the legislature, industry experts, as well as local, regional and state government officials to discuss the on-going, critical water issues facing our state. Our business climate, our ability to grow as a state, and our quality of life are all directly tied to the availability and sustainability of our water resources. As The Voice of Florida Business representing over 10,000 employers in Florida, AIF has a long history of engagement in water issues.
We invite you to join us for the 2016 Florida Water Forum to be held on September 22-23, at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando. Confirmed speakers and panelists will be announced in the coming weeks.
