During the first week of February, SWFAA joined forces with the Florida Apartment Association and affiliates from all over the state to descend upon the State Capital in Tallahassee to lobby to our local State Representatives & Senators. Due to the generosity of SWFAA members who have donated to APAC, we presented a check for $1,500 to support the Florida Apartment Political Action Committee!
