At the 90th Annual Conference, we exhibited and presented our training classes and products in front of civil officials. The goal of the League of Cities organization is to unite the municipalities of Florida and promote local self-government. The league has members representing over 400 cities, towns and villages in the state of Florida. This way of ‘Home Rule’ has been shown to be key in how democracy is exercised in the state. It also brings together the communities and multiplies the awareness to any of the cities issues and campaigns.
In October, the league celebrates “Florida City Government Week” from October 16-22, 2016. Volunteer time to your local community in their service projects, cleanup efforts and donation collections. These events strengthen and enrich the area, benefits neighbors and improves lives. For a list of local events in South Florida visit the Sun Sentinel Page Volunteer Guide or search for volunteer opportunities through the local newspaper in your area or state.
