The Florida Coastal Management Program is based on a network of agencies implementing 24 statues that protect and enhance the state's natural, cultural and economic coastal resources. The goal of the program is to coordinate local, state and federal agency activities using existing laws to ensure that Florida's coast is as valuable to future generations as it is today.
The Florida Coastal Management Program's annual meeting brings together various stakeholders and partners (local, state and federal) to broaden awareness of the program's activities, expand partnerships and discuss local coastal management issues. The first annual meeting was held last year (2016) in Tallahassee, FL as a state-wide summit discussing the Program's activities and successes from the previous five years. For the next four years, the meeting will be held in a different region of the state focusing on local coastal management topics of interest.
This year's meeting will be in St. Augustine, FL where we will highlight coastal management activities and locally relevant issues within Florida's northeast region.
