Join the Florida 2030 Conversation

     

 

By 2030, six million more residents will call Florida home and 2 million more jobs will be needed. To prepare for this continued growth and ensure Florida remains successful, we need a plan for Florida’s future that develops high-wage jobs, diversifies the economy, ensures global competitiveness and creates vibrant communities. The Florida Chamber Foundation is leading the charge to write the blueprint for Florida’s future — Florida 2030. This two-year research program will stimulate strategic thinking about Florida’s future and engage business and community leaders in each of Florida’s 67 counties in identifying key trends and the factors that can drive their regional economy. Florida 2030 is our opportunity to work together to strengthen your community, your business, and your future. Help us make Florida a better place for tomorrow.

“It’s a given that we are living in a rapidly changing global economy. If Florida leadership is not looking around the corner and planning for the future, the state could be economically left behind. So it was gratifying to see the Florida Chamber Foundation making the effort to hold these FL2030 Town Hall sessions, gathering open input from a large and diverse group of leaders around the state to peer around that corner,” said ROD THOMSON, President, The Thomson Group

Bring the Florida 2030 Conversation to Your County

The Florida 2030 project is coming to your community. In the coming months, town hall meetings will be held in each of Florida’s 67 counties to engage business and community leaders  in identifying key trends and the factors that can drive their regional economy. Our target is 10,000 voices telling us about the future. If you are interested in hosting a meeting in your community or would like to participate, contact Whitney Harris at 850.521.1237.
