The Florida Shore & Beach Preservation Association and Resiliency Florida welcome abstracts for the 2nd annual Florida Resilience Conference scheduled for September 27-29, 2023, at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The theme of the conference is The Future is Now!
The meeting will feature instruction on FSBPA’s traditional beach management agenda and expand into additional concurrent sessions focusing on Energy, Gray and Green Infrastructure, and Smart Planning. Plenary sessions will bring attendees together for discussion from invited speakers on resilience issues of statewide importance, such as federal and state legislative policy and funding initiatives. A preliminary conference schedule can be found here.
Individual abstracts must be received by June 16, 2023, to be considered by the planning committee for inclusion in the program. Abstracts should focus on policy and legal considerations, funding programs, research, and project innovations relating to climate change, sea-level rise, smart planning, beach management, energy, and infrastructure. Ideas for abstracts are listed below, but other ideas are welcome. The conference will be held as an in-person event only.
The deadline has now passed.
All expenses are the responsibility of the speaker, including travel, lodging, and conference registration fees.
