Due to the current health crisis afflicting our nation, the format of the contest for the Legislative Committee scholarship to the 2020 Conference has been changed. Instead of visiting your legislators at their offices, we are asking code officers throughout the state to e-mail their legislators to discuss code enforcement issues with them. Each letter must include at least three talking points from the Legislative Committee flyer which was included in the February edition of the InterFACE (http://face-online.org/wp-content/uploads/February-2020-INTERFACE.pdf), the fact that you are a member of the Florida Association of Code Enforcement and your local chapter (please mention the name of the chapter), and any additional code concerns you wish to share with them. You must also cc me on the e-mail to your legislator (firstname.lastname@example.org). and forward me any response you get from them. The chapter with the most e-mails to legislators that meet the aforementioned criteria will be awarded a scholarship to the 2020 conference- should the current health crisis cause cancellation of the 2020 conference, then the scholarship will be valid for the 2021 conference. Thank you for helping visualize code enforcement to our legislators throughout the state. Your efforts will help for a successful legislative session for code enforcement in 2020-2021. Be safe and wash your hands!
