Diversity/Gov’t Relations

Diversity and Government Relations work to educate members about the diversity of our industry while keeping tabs on legislative issues affecting our livelihood. Diversity also helps us diversify our membership to more closely mirror the percentile mix of minorities in the market. They also visit Tallahassee with 11 Florida House and Senate Representatives to discuss issues related to the advertising industry. Are you willing to go to bat for this industry? Step up to the plate.

      “I have come to the frightening conclusion that I am the decisive element. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. I possess tremendous power to make life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration, I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis is escalated or de-escalated, and a person is humanized or de-humanized. If we treat people as they are, we make them worse. If we treat people as they ought to be, we help them become what they are capable of becoming.” ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
