2023 KFB Annual Conference & Awards Luncheon

From the book swap to the awards luncheon and all of the networking in between, we had a blast at our 2023 Keep Florida Beautiful Conference in St. Augustine November 1- 3.

Attendees saw engaging presentations by Keep America Beautiful (Mallory Coffey), Keep St. Johns County Beautiful (Captain Sam Baker & Ginger Baker Sanhueza), PalmettoPride (Esther Wagner), Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful (Captain Al Antolik, Kristina Moreta, Rebecca Tolbert), Keep Coral Gables Beautiful (Solanch Lopez), Ocean Conservancy (Maggie Winchester-Weiler), Keep Highway Park Beautiful (Evelyn Colón), Keep Jacksonville Beautiful (Dan Durbec) Keep Miami Gardens Beautiful (Suzanne Newman), Keep Sarasota County Beautiful (Wendi Crisp) and Liquid Creative (Jen Houser). In addition, great conversations were had by local affiliates as they shared the knowledge, experiences, challenges and successes that keep their local programs operating. 

This event would not have been possible without our host affiliate, Keep St. Johns County Beautiful, and our generous sponsors!
