2018 Professional Engineers Legislative Days Recap

On January 30-31 over 150 members and non-members alike came to Tallahassee to defend key engineering issues at the Capitol. Professional Engineers as well as a few Surveyors and Mappers met with their Florida Representatives and Senators by breaking into groups of 5-9 professionals.  This year 17 groups met with over 100 legislators. Our special guest speakers included – FL 17th Lt. Governor and Former State Representative Jeff Kottkamp, Senator Denise Grimsley (R-26) and Tony Carvajal, Executive Vice President of the Florida Chamber Foundation.

A special thank you to Charles “Tem” T. Fontaine Jr., PE for taking pictures during the entire Legislative Days and the 13 students who took time out from school to learn more about Florida’s legislative process.

Pictures from the event are posted on our Facebook page.
