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.
“This past hurricane most certainly has reinforced the urgency for addressing climate resilience, as neighborhoods throughout the region experience flooding related to sea level rise. The graphic above could well take place… and sooner than you think. This topic is of such enormous import as to warrant being revisited by Tower Forum. Questions remain about the kind of infrastructure improvements we need, where, and when to build them to continue to protect our investments and prosperity in the foreseeable future. If you haven’t yet been directly impacted, learn how you will be. Join us in a lively discussion about what we need to do to sustainably transform our communities.”
