On Monday, Feb. 24, Broward Days will host a reception with Florida Senate Appropriations Chairman Joe Negron in the Las Olas Riverside Hotel from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. The appearance by Senator Negron, known as the Florida Senate’s “Budget Chief,” is part of the Broward Days program in preparation for the 2014 Florida Legislative Session.
“Now that Governor Rick Scott has presented his proposal for Florida’s 2014 State Budget, the media spotlight will be squarely focused on Senator Negron,” explained Broward Days Chairman Mike Colodny. “This reception is a very unique opportunity for Broward’s business and political community to meet and interact with one of Florida’s most powerful public policy leaders.”'
Sponsored by Baptist Health South Florida, the reception will be the final complimentary event before Broward Days’ new membership fees begin. To attract new members, or those who may have been hoping to rejoin, fees have been lowered for the coming season, which will include the scheduled 2015 renewal of the organization’s traditional annual Tallahassee pilgrimage.
“Broward Days’ new strategy of ‘Bringing Tallahassee to Broward’ is designed to create a solid partnership with our policymakers—thereby accomplishing our members legislative goals and bringing better sponsor value, long-term,” Mr. Colodny added.
Most recently, Broward Days hosted Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford at a reception hosted by Nova Southeastern University.
The seminar is free, but you must preregister by going to the Broward Days' Senator Negron event registration page. If you are unfamiliar with Florida's budget process, but want to know a little bit more before the event, there's a website for that, too!
