Humanists of Florida Association(HFA)
As you are aware, The Humanists Society of the Suncoast (HSS) is a co-sponsor of the conference to be held in Sarasota, Florida from April 30th – May 2nd, entitled Forging a Humanist and Secular Coalition: Taking the Next Steps. We would like to see as many members of HSS attending the conference and would encourage as many as possible to stay over for the Sunday sessions, when decisions will be made on how best to achieve the conference goals going forward. You may register online at: www.FloridaHumanist.org
In an effort to be more productive at the conference, HFA is endeavoring to get some feedback on the services that HFA presently offers to our Affiliate Organizations, such as HSS.

1. Understanding and learning organizational best practices;
2. Retaining and recruiting members;
3. Using technology;
4. Gaining publicity;
5. Preparing presentations;
