Oh, Tampa

Congratulations and thanks are due to the neighboring Suncoast Section who hosted and put together an excellent and inspirational 2016 APA Florida Chapter conference. “Inspiring Florida’s Future” featured Tampa Bay Times Craig Pittman, an inspirational sermon from former Deputy Secretary of HUD Ron Sims, and loads and loads of good food, receptions, and mobile tours of the Tampa Bay region. Many members of the Promised Lands had a good time, learned a lot, and hopefully got back home more inspired and more prepared for planning SW Florida’s future. Best wishes to our hosts again and we look forward to what Daytona Beach offers “Rising to the Challenge” in 2017.
