A Letter from the SWANA FL President

A Letter from the SWANA FL President

SWANA Florida Sunshine Chapter Members,

After much deliberation, I have the unfortunate duty to pass along that the Executive Committee has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Summer Conference and Chapter Road-E-O. This decision was a combination of safety concerns, travel constraints and evaluation of our contracts with the host hotels.  We are in the process of negotiating the same spaces for April/May of 2021 in the hope that the situation in Florida will be such that we can meet safely and continue to network, share ideas and improve solid waste management in our state. 

In the meantime, we are looking for other, alternative ideas to continue to provide information, learning and networking for the membership.  As these opportunities develop, we will pass them along.  The past several months have been challenging for all and I’m sure we all want nothing but what’s best for all our members. I am committed, even with these diverse times, to find ways to provide value for your membership. 

I look forward to when we can all meet in person but until then, stay safe and continue the hard work we do in an industry that is essential to the health and safety of our communities. Please reach out to me if you have questions. 

It’s Friday, let’s get to the weekend in one piece and be thankful for those around us.

Keith Howard
SWANA FL President
