Margate, FL (PRWEB) June 25, 2014
Last Friday, June 20th, CAN, the leading grass roots community association advocacy network hosted its 2014 South Florida Legislative Town Hall in Margate, Florida. More than 200 community association leaders attended the event at the Katzman Garfinkel Law Firm Law & Learning Educational Campus. "We are especially grateful to the Legislators attending, taking time out of their busy schedules to come talk with statewide community association leaders about the recently concluded 2014 Legislative Session and for educating our CAN members and guests on the highlights of the 2014 Legislative Session," said the law firm's Founding Partner Leigh Katzman.
"With the law pertaining to community associations in constant flux, organizations like CAN play a vital role in keeping members updated. I want to thank the leadership of CAN for putting on this informative and important event. I look forward to participating in many more," Senator Sachs said. A large contingent of influential legislators attended the CAN Legislative Panel at Katzman Garfinkel including, Senator Dwight Bullard, Senator Maria Sachs, Senator Chris Smith, and Representative Gwyn Clarke-Reed, Representative George Moratis, Representative Hazelle Rogers, and Representative Richard Stark. "Because there are millions of folks living in common interest communities affected by laws passed each year, we can't thank the legislators enough who participated in the 2014 CAN Legislator Panel and listened carefully to the concerns raised by CAN's membership and shared their vision for providing educated, safe and prosperous communities throughout Florida," said Founding Partner Alan Garfinkel.
Several of the legislators continue to make repeat appearances at CAN's Town Halls and find them extraordinarily useful. "I'm always happy to support CAN in their efforts to increase civic engagement and participation. The participants are always well informed and I know leave with a number of policy ideas." said Senator Dwight Bullard.
