The Tower Forum is a private, non-profit, non-partisan business organization established in 1976. The organization consists of business executives from industries and professions in south Florida. The Tower Forum has become the “go-to” discussion venue in Broward, where these leaders identify critical issues facing our community, engage in public dialogue, and encourage positive change.
Recent steps have been taken in Tallahassee to ensure major overhauls and refocus on the Everglades, a political football for decades. Our water quality/management is still a major issue. Courageous choices need to be made. Is there light at the end of this tunnel?
Discuss with our panel of experts how viable paths are slowly opening.
