Each year during the height of the Legislative Session, FAC hosts its Legislative Day. Commissioners and staff are encouraged to come to Tallahassee to assist in the lobbying efforts to protect home rule and prevent unfunded mandates. Governor, Cabinet, legislators and agency heads have been invited.
In an effort to centralize all of the Legislative Day activities, many events will be held steps away from the Capitol building at the Challenger Learning Center on Kleman Plaza, in the heart of downtown with meetings, restaurants and reception all within walking distance.
