Annual FAA Legislative Conference January 30th & 31st

Posted By: Robert Griffiths Advocacy News ,

BAAA needs your help to get the message across to our legislators about several issues of concern to the multi-family industry. The annual FAA Legislative Conference will be held this year on January 30th and 31st in Tallahassee. Tuesday’s schedule will include committee meetings, the FAA board of directors meeting, a full legislative issues briefing and a networking reception to close out the day.

The FAA Legislative Conference Hotel has sold out — the secondary locations Aloft Hotel and Candlewood Suites still have rooms at this time. Please go to www.faahq.org for Conference and Hotel Registration information.

BAAA and FAA needs your participation in the Conference to insure that multi-family’s voice is heard when we meet with the elected officials who have a direct impact on our resident’s, our owners, suppliers and our jobs and economy.

Wednesday’s Hill visits will be a great opportunity to see Florida’s government at work as the BAAA teams begin their appointments with elected officials from the Bay Area to thank them for their support in the past and to ask if we can assist them in any way.

You will have time to network briefly and to share the reason you are there and why you are asking for the legislator’s support. You will have hand out materials to share with the person you are meeting with during your visit. Be sure to take business cards with you and to get the card of the aide or the representative who met with you. If appropriate, ask permission to take a photo as you leave.

The three priorities for this year’s Legislative days at this time are the William E. Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Fund, door to door Valet Trash Collection for Apartments and Renters Insurance concerns. There are other issues that may arise as the session progresses, FAA and BAAA will keep us updated as the they develop.

BAAA has made arrangements to reimburse our attendees for the $95 FAA registration fee. If you have questions about the Conference or are interested in car pooling to Tallahassee, please give me a call at the BAAA office.
