10th Annual Legislative Advocacy Summit A Success
Thanks to the Chamber’s Legislative Summit held November 18, 2019, our legislative delegation will be packing their legislative Green Book, filled with the priorities of the nonprofit sector, to Tallahassee for the 2020 Legislative Session. Senator Bobby Powell and Representatives MaryLynn Magar and Matt Wilhite, plus 13 legislative aides attended the event to hear the priorities, why they are important to the health and welfare of thousands of Palm Beach County residents, and to receive the Green Book.
The Chamber’s Legislative Initiative was developed 10 years ago to give a collective voice to those providing health and human services to underserved and unserved county residents. Dozens of organizations provide their priorities and then select the top two in each of six categories: Children and Youth; Disabilities; Elders; Health; Homeless/Hunger/Housing; and Mental Health/Substance Abuse. It is done through a consensus process lauded by lawmakers. Those are then compiled into the Green Book and handed to our legislators and aides.
This was the 10th year of this initiative which is funded by Allegany-Franciscan Ministries.
