Please Support the DeGrove Webinar Series!
In January of this year we launched an experiment--a free monthly community steward webinar series to honor 1000 Friends of Florida founder Dr. John M. DeGrove. Thanks to supporters like you, this experiment has proven a resounding success.

Some of the
state's leading experts in planning, transportation, conservation and legislative affairs have donated hundreds of hours of their time to prepare and present on these timely topics. Over the course of the year, close to 2000 participants have attended Florida-specific webinars on the 2013 Florida Legislature, transportation mobility systems, greenways and conservation planning, the Everglades, the economics of sustainable development and much more. More than 700 webinar participants have received free professional certification credits from the American Institute of Certified Planners, totaling more than 1100 credit hours. Others have received free CLE credits from the Florida Bar and CEHP credits for health professionals.

But as you can imagine,
these webinars cost money to conduct.1000 Friends must pay the subscription costs for Go-To-Webinar, certification fees to obtain credits from the American Institute of Certified Planners and the Florida Bar, the costs of upgraded computer equipment, not to mention the staff time it takes to produce these webinars. We hope we can continue to offer these webinars-with certification credits-over the course of 2014. But we need your help.

Please consider
making a donation to 1000 Friends' Dr. John M. DeGrove Education Fund so we can continue to offer this valuable service over the coming year. If you prefer, you can make a general support donation to 1000 Friends. Thank you for your support!

P.S. Check out the webinars we are
planning for 2014, and broadcasts from some of our 2013 webinars.
