Florida's Economic Relaunch Moves Forward to Phase 2

Florida is transitioning to Phase 2 of Governor DeSantis’ Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step reopening plan, with 64 counties slated to move into Phase 2 on June 5th. This is another important step in relaunching Florida’s economy.

On Friday, June 12 from 1:30 – 3:00 p.m., join Florida Chamber Foundation Chief Economist Dr. Jerry Parrish and me for an in depth discussion on what Florida businesses should know about Phase 2. We’ll also continue to highlight how local chambers across Florida are doing their part to relaunch their local economies through the #ChamberStrong movement. We hope you can join us for this timely event.

Friday, June 12
1:30 – 3:00 p.m. EDT
