Joe Byrne, FRSA President
The meetings were well attended and topics covered everything from codes to convention to membership and all that our great industry represents.
FRSA Legislative Council Chris Dawson brought us up to speed legislatively, with a glance of things to come in the 2022 legislative session. Chris also invited Florida Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis to attend the Governmental Affairs Committee meeting and present the group with a brief update on the financial health of Florida, among other topics.
On Saturday, the Board of Directors met and reviewed projected year-end numbers, which looked tremendous. At this time last year, FRSA leadership was very concerned about cash flow following the cancellation of the 2020 Convention and Expo. I’m very pleased to announce that we’ll end the year with a substantial profit. I’d like to thank FRSA’s CPA, Mike Reed, who looks out for the financial interests of FRSA and its subsidiaries. I would also like to thank Lisa Pate and her great staff: Cheryl Sulock, John Hellein and Maria Armas, who made the first Board meeting a wonderful experience. Read more.
