"Marijuana: What Does It Mean For Your Local Government"
October 20, 2016 –
Amendment 2, a proposed Constitutional amendment relating to medical cannabis, is on the November ballot and recent polls show that it has a great chance of passing. If (or when) it passes, your community will feel the impact immediately. This year’s Fall Symposium will help you better understand what IS in the amendment and what ISN’T, what that means for your city or county, and the steps that you can be taking now to prepare.
Attendees will hear from experts on how the expansion of medical cannabis could affect land use and zoning, public safety, and other services provided at the local level. You’ll learn how other states have dealt with medical cannabis and ways to avoid some of the problems that they’ve had. Finally, you’ll learn about the potential economic impact that medical cannabis could have on your community. This is one Symposium that you won’t want to miss!

Palm Beach Gardens Onsite Training Session

“Preparing for Incidents that Bring International Media Attention to your Agency”
All cities, and all counties, regardless of size or location, are just one incident away from being the center of international media attention. A single police incident, regardless of fault, can create an untenable impact on city and county resources and ill perceptions of the intent and commitment that a government has to public service. There may not be a more "ripe" time in recent history for FCCMA to provide a forum to discuss strategies for local government professionals confronted with such a situation. A diverse panel of local government professionals in Palm Beach County will offer ideas/plans that will help prepare attendees and their agencies to respond when such situation happens. This important training is universally applicable to all local governments and a must attend for key staff members within your organizations.
