Join us at FSA’s Annual Conference as we Celebrate 25 Years of Leadership in Stormwater!  A great deal has happened since 1993 in Florida’s stormwater programs - and also in the Association!  FSA has become a valuable resource to stormwater professionals in the state providing much needed communications, research, technical assistance, involvement in the courts and legislature, training, and education.  FSA's conferences are recognized by stormwater professionals throughout Florida as key industry events and this year will be our best! If you only attend one event this year, this is the one you can't miss!

Why Should You Attend?
FSA’s Annual Conference is different from the rest.  Here are the top 5 reasons:

Presentations are submitted and selected by your peers, so the topics are always relevant!   FSA offers multiple workshop tracks, so you’re sure to find the content you’re looking for and “Encore Presentations” - where popular sessions are offered in two different time slots – guarantee you won’t have to miss a thing!
  1. Networking Opportunities – Sharing information and learning from your peers is more important than ever, and the Annual Conference attracts the “Best of the Best” in the stormwater profession!
