At the first Leadership Summit,we heard from national and international leaders in resiliency while engaging in a dialog about new and innovative programs, strategies, and policy that our local leaders can implement in their communities to create a more resilient Tampa Bay.
Our 2nd Leadership Summit took it to the next level as we unveiled the efforts, progress, and work that has taken place since the first summit with the introduction of the DRAFT Regional Resiliency Action Plan (RRAP).Summit attendees and sponsors participated in a historic event to solidify this resiliency plan for future generations to come. And like the first event, the agenda was comprised of local leaders and experts in the field of resiliency and climate change and specifically addressed issues such as storm water, flooding, heat, sea level rise, etc. that affect our region and how best we can work together to address those issues.
The Leadership Summit also hosted the60th Anniversary Celebrationof the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council taking place on the evening of April 5th as well as the 28th Annual Future of the Region Awardswhich was the highlight of the Leadership Summit luncheon on April 6th.
