By Mark Ryan, City Manager, City of Indian Harbour Beach
We are looking for SME’s (Subject Matter Experts) to assist our organization’s Legislative Committee as we navigate through the 2020 Legislative Session. Believe it or not the upcoming session has commenced with the Interim Legislative Committee Meetings in both chambers and will run from September through December. This upcoming legislative session is during an election year and has a potential to be fast-paced and capable of impacting local government functions and operations.
In preparation for the 2020 Legislative Session we are attempting to recruit an army of SME’s to address the myriad of issues that may surface during the session. To kick-off this initiative we have a meeting either in-person or via teleconference on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Orlando, Lake Buena Vista South, 4955 Kyngs Heath Road, Kissimmee, following the Florida League of Cities (FLC) Fall Research Symposium. Recognizing that members of the FCCMA are not members of the FLC, are not traveling to Orlando for the Research Symposium, or maybe an SME from within our organization that are not attending, we have reserved a call-in capability that will be distributed in a future follow-up announcement.
This session will afford members and members of your team to join this army of SME’s and become a major resource during this important time of the year.
