Updates from Harold Mitchell

Harold Mitchell, Executive Director of ReGenesis CDC, will provide an update on new environmental protection legislation. Many of you will remember Mr. Mitchell as a featured speaker from our conference last fall.

Needs Assessment Survey

The FBA is conducting a membership-wide needs assessment to better understand the needs and interests of our members. Please take this brief survey and let us know what you think about our mission, advocacy, leadership, and other key issues including the annual conference. We value your feedback and look forward to hearing from you! 

Take the Survey

EPA Update

EPA will talk with us about the status of Region IV. We will discuss key issues, news and events. This is the next best thing to visiting the Atlanta offices.

FDEP Discussion and Roundtable

Travel with us virtually to the FDEP offices for a discussion and roundtable question and answer session. FDEP participants will include Kelly Crain, Tim Bahr, Teresa Booeshagi, Jennifer Farrell, Ronni Moore, and Scott Sweeney.

What Do You Need From FBA?

FBA has always known that we are much stronger when we act together. As we continue to navigate new challenges in 2021, we wanted to make sure we understand the things you need from your membership. Bring us your ideas - we are listening.
