Public Policy & Advocacy Council
The Advocacy and Public Policy Council helps ensure that our Members of Congress and State Legislators understand the programs and funding mechanisms necessary to build and diversify Florida’s economy, creating a world-class business location.
With input from our local, regional and state partners, the Advocacy and Public Policy Council meets regularly to discuss and review potential issues and their impact on our region. A proposed Legislative Agenda is developed annually and sent to the Partnership Executive Committee. Once the agenda has been revised and approved by the Executive Committee, it is sent to the Partnership Board of Directors for final revisions and approval. After this, the Partnership and partners work to advance the agenda.
“Our legislative agenda is critical to the continued success of the Orlando region’s economy. Our legislative focus is to champion initiatives that effectively increase access, mobility and broad-based prosperity….”

President and CEO at Orlando Economic Partnership
