    Dear Chandra,
     
    Florida's job creators are going through unforeseen and unprecedented times. As Florida's economic relaunch continues, the 2020 Florida Primary Election only adds fuel to the “what will happen next?” conversation.

    Join the Florida Chamber of Commerce for an executive-level discussion on Monday, August 24 from 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. EDT. when Florida Chamber Foundation Chief Economist Dr. Jerry Parrish and I will take a closer look at the latest news concerning reopening Florida’s schools and higher education institutions, economic data and answer your questions about Florida's path forward. We will also be joined by Florida Chamber Vice President of Political Operations Nick Catroppo who will provide his analysis of the Florida Primary Election results.

    To help ensure your questions are addressed, please complete our questionnaire as part of the registration process.

    Thanks for your continued work to help move Florida in the right direction. We look forward to your participation in this informative webinar.
