Municipal Web Design

February 20: Marketing Your City with Municipal Web Design

Your city's website is a key tool in creating a positive first impression and ensure a continually positive experience for engaged citizens. It’s the first place that visitors and tourists will go to learn what events and activities are not to be missed. It’s the first place prospective new citizens will go when considering their relocation options. It’s also the first place business leaders will go when considering expansion opportunities in new markets. For these, and so many other reasons, your local government website needs to visually depict everything that makes your community unique, inspiring, and inviting. Join us as Rachael Walker with CivicPlus showcases some of the hottest trends in municipal web design and why they work with residents. Register Now.

Septic to Sewer

March 14: Septic to Sewer - Getting there from here

Septic systems have been identified by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection as a major contributor to the degradation of many of our water bodies around the state.  The challenge of transitioning from septic systems to centralized sewer can be a political nightmare and very expensive.  Join our guest speaker, Terri Lowery, Sr. VP with Jones Edmunds & Associates, for a discussion on financial and public education strategies to bolster efforts to protect our precious water resources. Learning from others will help facilitate a smoother transition to use of centralized wastewater collection and treatment in environmentally sensitive areas. Register Now.
