Focus:

  • Advocate League positions by working with League issue groups and programs, as well as governmental actors including legislators, commissioners and board members at national, state, and local levels.
  • Organize “Observer Corps” to monitor the County Commission, School Board and Municipal Commissions  (Palm Beach Gardens, Riviera Beach, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Lake Worth, Wellington, West Palm Beach) and be a visible representation of the League. Advocacy also produces two forums per year, Legislative Preview and Legislative Wrap-up where State Senators and State Representatives from Palm Beach County address their constituents and answer questions pertaining to the upcoming or just completed legislative session.
