2022 Tallahassee Fly In Was a Success!


We had a productive trip to Tallahassee for our 2022 Joint Chamber Legislative Fly In!


This year, we visited the Florida State Capitol live and in person after our 2021 virtual "fly in." This day featured meetings and briefings with Governor DeSantis, Legislators, Cabinet Officials, and Agency heads. We were able to share our pro-business and pro-community legislative priorities with lawmakers in Tallahassee, and hear updates on their agendas.

Advocacy is essential for our business community. What an honor it is to see Brevard County come together for a day filled with lobbying.


We want to give a special thank you to all who made this trip possible. Special thank you to all of the partners that could join us and be a part of this trip and also to our partners:


Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce

The Greater Palm Bay Chamber of Commerce

Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce


Once again, thank you to the Melbourne Orlando International Airport for sponsoring this important event.


We look forward to traveling back next year!

Special Edition Nonprofit Council!


"We're Tired: Rescuing Yourself and Your People From Burnout"


Remember when we used to say it's been a rough year? How about a challenging two years?! If you're like many of us in the nonprofit sector you're not just fatigued, you're exhausted. Business as usual hasn't been usual for a long time and many of us are feeling it personally, in our team and in our work.


Join Nonprofit Council, Wednesday, Feb.16th for a virtual interactive conversation that will share real-world and sector-specific survival stories - and tips for the road that lies ahead - from three local experts in nonprofit excellence.


This session will feature executive, consultant and volunteer leaders from around our state and will be moderated by TedX speaker and fourth-generation Floridian Liz Wooten-Reschke. This inspiring and real-world view on the struggles and triumphs of nonprofit business in the new abnormal is brought to you in partnership with Florida-based consulting firm Connect For More.
