Welcome to the Florida Local Environmental Resource Agencies, Inc. (FLERA) home page!

 

Information’s pretty thin stuff unless mixed with experience.”

– Clarence Day (1874-1935)

 

This quote taken from a world so long gone couldn’t be more relevant today.  In our age of the Internet, information is just keystrokes away; in fact, we’re overloaded with it!  The current challenge is getting the right perspective and insight on all that information to make it actually work for you.

That’s where FLERA comes in.

As a member of FLERA, you get up-to-date information, and you’re “plugged in” to a statewide network of smart, passionate, forward thinking environmental managers, both government and private.  Talk about perspective – in a few keystrokes or a conference call, you can workshop your local issues or plans with experienced minds and gain the insight of dozens of local governments, from metropolitan to rural.

You also gain an advocate.  FLERA has a robust Legislative monitoring program, working even before the session starts on issues that matter to you.  We are meeting with key managers at state agencies on budget and policy issues, educating state legislators on local issues and fighting for your rights at the local level.

Successfully positioning yourself in Florida’s rapidly changing world takes initiative and a strong Rolodex.  A membership with FLERA can provide both.

The mission of FLERA is to enhance communication, education and advocacy for Florida local environmental protection efforts. FLERA was formed in the late 1960s as a voluntary association of local environmental programs to share information about mutual resource concerns and solutions. Today, FLERA is a diverse organization of state, county and municipal agencies and consulting firms. Our members provide a wide variety of environmental protection and land management services.

We hope that you choose to become a member of our team, and stand together with us to protect Florida’s environmental resources.

FLERA is a not-for-profit Florida corporation and is approved as an exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
