Posted On 02/03/2020 by Matt Lettelleir

The Chamber will head to our State Capitol for St. Pete Day: Chamber Trip to Tallahassee, presented by Spectrum, on February 19th and 20th.

Highlights of the trip include:

Day 1

Lunch sponsored by Shumaker, Loop, & Kendrick, LLP and Shumaker Advisors

Evening Reception sponsored by TECO Energy and hosted by The Southern Group

Day 2

Lunch sponsored by BayCare

As our full agenda is formed, here are the Top 5 Reasons to join us before registrations sell out.

1.) Meaningful Connections

Travelling to Tallahassee with two dozen community leaders including City Council Members and Mayor Kriseman is invaluable. Conversations on trips like this and Thinking Outside the ‘Burg have kick-started countless initiatives in our city and helped our members grow their business and personal networks exponentially.

2.) Meet State Leaders

Past Chamber trips to Tallahassee have included meetings with Cabinet Members Attorney General Ashley Moody, Commissioner of Agriculture Nikki Fried, and Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis as well as Leaders of the Florida House and Senate.

3.) Watch Our Legislature In Action

There is nothing like experiencing State Government first hand by watching the Committee or Floor Sessions in person. Seeing “The Process”, as many refer to State Government, in action is always a highlight of any Chamber Tallahassee trip.

4.) Move Our Issues Forward

The Chamber has a robust Legislative Agenda this year and the more members we bring to Tallahassee the more effective our advocacy efforts will be. Having a few dozen community leaders taking time out of their busy schedules to fight for our community is very powerful.

5.) Support the Chamber- It’s FUN

Ask any past attendee and they can attest that the St. Pete Chamber trips are a fun time. This year The Southern Group will host our group for an cocktail reception with Legislative Leaders and our Local Delegation. Afterwards, attendees wanting to stay out will have the opportunity to experience Adams Street and socialize with lobbyists and lawmakers casually after they finish their work for the day.

Limited seats remain so CLICK HERE to register for this great trip on February 19th and 20th.
