Welcome Class XXXIII, Connect Florida Class V and College Leadership Florida Class XVI!
College Leadership Florida Class XVI met last week in Orlando. It was a whirlwind! In addition to their trip to the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station (pictured below), they learned how to make a good first impression from LF Annual Meeting speaker Patti Wood, “balanced” the Florida budget with one of our favorites, Glenn Robertson, got a history lesson from Gary Mormino, took a tour of the National Center for Simulation at UCF, met current LF members for a reception at Sea World, visited Camp Boggy Creek and MUCH, MUCH more! They will convene again in Tallahassee in March where they will have the opportunity to join Class XXXIII for some of their session.
Class XXXIII begins their journey with us September 10-12 at the Mission Inn in Howey-in-the-Hills. There, they will have sessions on Florida’s history, demographics, economy, politics, and diversity...just to name a few! Their next gathering takes place in Sarasota, followed by Pensacola, Tallahassee, Miami, and finally, St. Petersburg at the Leadership Florida Annual Meeting.
Connect Class V has their opening session October 17-19 in Jacksonville entitled “Putting Leadership Theory into Action.” They will get a leadership assessment to help increase their understanding of their own style, enjoy Florida’s natural treasures, and begin to lay the foundation for lasting bonds, connections and friendships with their classmates. They will meet again in Tampa, Tallahassee, and Miami. They will also meet one final time at the Leadership Florida Annual Meeting in St. Petersburg.
This is going to be one busy and fun-filled year for Leadership Florida!
