The Florida Shore & Beach Preservation Association and Resiliency Florida welcome abstracts for the 2nd annual Florida Resilience Conference on October 5-7, 2022, at the Hyatt Coconut Point in Bonita Springs, FL.
The conference features FSBPA’s traditional beach management program and expands into three additional concurrent sessions focusing on resilience in the Agriculture, Energy, and Transportation industries. Plenary sessions will bring all attendees together for discussion from invited speakers on issues of statewide importance, such as federal and state legislative policy and funding initiatives.

Ideas for abstracts are listed below, but other ideas are welcome. Note, that the conference will be held as an in-person event only.
