FBA Annual Conference Committee

Description

The Annual Conference Committee is a group of member volunteers that assembles the yearly FBA conference for members and other Brownfields professionals. Committee members plan the theme, venue, sessions, and special events at the conference. They evaluate presenter submissions, guide the culture of the event, and work hands-on to bring our members one of the premiere Brownfields events in the region. The Annual Conference is the most significant money-generating activity the FBA does, and largely funds our activities, projects, and operations. Without this event, we could not operate.

Every fourth year, the committee hosts the Southeast Regional Brownfields Conference in lieu of the Annual Florida Brownfields Conference. The Southeast Regional Conference attracts Brownfields professionals from an even wider area, brings together bigger ideas, and generates even more resources for FBA.

The first Florida Brownfields Conference was held in 1998. Today, the conferences attract more than 300 attendees, representing a diverse cross-section of people from municipal, non-profit, commercial, educational, legal, and regulatory sectors to participate in an active information exchange. About 50 presenters represent the most influential and innovative people, projects and ideas in the Brownfields industry.
