A sample of presentation topics include: Effectively Working with Land Managers; Building Partnerships; Successfully Advocating Your Club/Organization; Liability Management; Recruitment and Retention of Volunteers; Funding for Your Organization. In addition there will be presentations on the business side of outdoor recreation, resource conservation and the importance of outdoor recreation and wellness. The complete agenda is nearly finalized and will be out very shortly.
We are pleased to announce that once again, prior to the beginning of the Florida Outdoor Recreation Summit, FLORC will be hosting the annual Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST) Symposium along with the National Forests in Florida and the Florida Trail Association. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the FNST. The symposium is scheduled for Saturday, September 28 from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.
Anyone with a vested interest in outdoor recreation in Florida, including clubs and organizations, agency providers, outfitters or businesses, will want to be part of this very informative weekend. The Forum on Outdoor Recreation is a unique opportunity to bring all the players together who help make outdoor recreation a successful $38.6 Billion program in Florida. This is the event to share ideas and to have an active voice in the future of outdoor recreation in Florida.
