The Florida Association of Counties 2021 Innovation & Policy Conference will showcase county innovative programs and projects around the state; deliver new educational opportunities for county commissioners and staff; and launch fresh, research-based leadership training for FAC members. In addition, this Summit is designed to facilitate discussion on the many policy issues facing counties, debate new and old issues and begin to narrow down the policies for a final vote before the end of the year.
Who Should Attend
Florida Association of Counties provides many opportunities for county officials to gain valuable knowledge and compare experiences with other officials from across the state. For more than 85 years, the Florida Association of Counties (FAC) has represented the diverse interests of Florida’s counties, emphasizing the importance of protecting home rule – the concept that communities and their local leaders should make the decisions that impact their community.
FAC is the only association representing Florida's counties – bringing together the collective experience and knowledge of 377 county commissioners and supported by thousands of county professional staff. FAC provides the cohesive platform that enables county officials and staff to speak with a unified voice on behalf of all Floridians.
