Regional Summits - Choose from four dates & locations!

FLC University's Regional Summits take place at locations around the state throughout the year. Our faculty offers an array of knowledge and expertise in the courses offered and the courses have been developed in recognition of the numerous and complex issues that face our member cities. 

We hope you will take advantage of these courses designed specifically to address our unique municipal needs so we can offer the very best solutions to Florida’s citizens. Join the many municipal officials and staff who are already taking advantage of these free training options!


Rumors of official investigations, public accusations by critics and political rivals, and hostile interactions on the dais are among the most challenging of moments in public service. If we haven’t planned for them or don’t anticipate their occurrence, we may respond in ways that make matters worse, not better. Dealing with these difficult situations effectively as municipal officials requires discipline, self-awareness and a deep commitment to the public we serve. Learn how to manage these moments of conflict and provide the public honest assurance that you, and the city, will uphold the public trust.

This unique summit will combine instruction on core communication concepts, activities involving hypothetical challenges, and opportunities for you to discuss issues arising in your own city with seasoned experts and your peers.

TIME: 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Doors open at 9:00 a.m.
WHO: The summit is designed for elected officials, department directors and communications staff.
COST: Free to members. Lunch will be provided.
