TRAINING & ADVOCACY

 

Florida PAC uses a "train the trainer" process to assist organizations with developing a team of leaders comfortable with assisting and guiding their own members through the legislative process and throughout the year while developing relationships with policy makers at all levels.

We offer training sessions throughout the year in Tallahassee and around the state
