Have you ever wanted to learn how the Fire Department, Sheriff's Office, Lee County government and town officials work together to keep everything running smoothly in our island paradise? Or learn more about the wonderful resources our town offers? The 2017 Leadership Conference is fast approaching, and the Community Resources Advisory Board (CRAB) still has a few openings for those who would like to participate. The conference is free and open to anyone who wants to learn more about our community residents, snowbirds, visitors, off-islanders everyone is invited and there is no obligation to join anything.

The two-day conference will be held on Friday, April 7, and Saturday, April 8, beginning at Town Hall each morning at 8:30 a.m. with coffee and biscuits. The first day will feature presentations from the various entities that interact with the Town of Fort Myers Beach, including the Lee County Sheriff's Office, Fort Myers Beach Fire Control District and Lee County Government. Participants will learn about arts on the island, island ecology, non-profit organizations and charities and the town's advisory committees. They will also enjoy a free lunch provided by the town.

Day two is a favorite amongst previous graduates: field trip day. Have you ever wanted to learn more about Matanzas Pass Preserve? Or actually what the Mound House is and why has so much work been put into preserving it? What about the Beach Library - what kind of resources are there? This day features transportation to the above-mentioned sites day along with a picnic lunch at the beautiful grounds of the Mound House.

Come get a behind the scenes look at life in paradise. Many of our graduates do go on to serve our wonderful island community as volunteers, and some even as council members. Participation is limited so sign up now!
