Florida Keys Day

April 18, 2017

Tallahassee

 

Florida Keys Day is a day-long advocacy event that will provide the people of Monroe County a chance to get up close and personal with lawmakers and staff who shape the policies that affect all organizations in the Florida Keys. FKD was initiated as the Class XVII Class Project and has been held each year since 2010.

Florida Keys Day will be a pairing of both the public and private sector presenting to the Florida Legislature and the Governor of Florida a unified voice for Monroe County’s unique needs including but not limited to wastewater policies and funding, affordable housing, property insurance issues and tourism initiatives.  Florida Keys Day will be an opportunity to lobby legislators, network with state agencies, and will provide an environment for Monroe County to clearly convey its message to the state government.

As part of the festivities, a Florida Keys style reception and happy hour is planned in the Capitol Courtyard for April 18, 2017 from 5-7 pm, complete with a seafood extravaganza, key lime pie and cocktails.  The event is free and open to the public so everyone is invited.
