How's your summer going?....

With less than a week to go, a few Best Practice Award nominators had some technical difficulty when it came to submit their nomination online. We hate it when that happens. So we are going to extend the deadline to next Wednesday - August 6. Hope this helps.

On a related note, the Florida Green School Network is still accepting nominations Green School Awards for school districts. September 15th is the new deadline and there is a new short form for use by school districts. 

Both the Best Practice Awards and the Florida Green School Awards will be presented in conjunction with the Working on the Green Sustainability Summit presented by Mosaic in October at Streamsong Resort.

While we are working on the keynote, plenary and panel presentations for the annual Working on the Green event We are excited to announce that Florida Trend will be our Media Sponsor for the Working on the Greens and Best Practice Awards program. Florida Trend is a fabulous magazine that reaches the state's movers and shakers with great reporting. Their upcoming December issue will have a sustainability theme. We encourage you to consider using this opportunity to position your organization in the marketplace. 

In case you missed it, the US Environmental Protection Agency began listening sessions across the country to hear what people think of their proposals to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. The State of Florida would have to reduce emissions by 38% per the proposed rule. It will be interesting to see what transpires over the next few months.

As always, we continue to update our website calendar and Facebook page with other great events. We invite you to join us.

All the best - 

Tim Center, Esq. Executive Director
