We are excited and pleased to be able to host our quarterly NFEDP Board of Directors and General Membership meeting. The agenda is packed with key business items, as well as GREAT information and presentations. Notably, we have extended an invitation and are working with new Florida Department of Commerce Secretary Alex Kelly's office and are hopeful he and his executive staff can attend. Our utility partners will be providing insight into their growing funding support and opportunities in our region, and a case study for a recent project announcement in our region will be covered. Please join us for this IMPORTANT meeting!
