2012 FJA Member Retreat
At the Historic Grove Park Inn Resort & Spa
Asheville, North Carolina
July 15-18, 2012
Once again, the time has come for members and staff of the Florida Justice Association to come together for the FJA's Member Retreat. Every year, this event offers an opportunity for us to reflect on the events of the past year and to plan for upcoming challenges and opportunities. The coming year promises to be a crucial one for determining the future of our organization and rights of Florida's citizens. Please make plans to help build that future by joining us in Asheville. Both the beauty of the location and the work we do there will lay the groundwork for success in the months and years to come.
At the retreat we will discuss and plan our legislative, political and organizational needs for the future. As President-elect of FJA, Gary Farmer personally invites you to come and be a part of determining the direction of the FJA, implement the strategies needed to reach our 2012 elections goals and to prioritize legislative goals for upcoming sessions.
Asheville: Edgy, Artsy and Inviting
There's something special about Asheville, and the world is just beginning to discover it. This thriving mountain city features a funky and eclectic downtown, 30-plus art galleries downtown alone, a burgeoning culinary scene, a thriving live music scene and, of course, the awe-inspiring scenery of the Appalachian Mountains.
Asheville is the ultimate playground, with a wide diversity of outdoor adventures and the ideal destination for an active and healthy getaway.
Gary and his family hope you will join them in Asheville for the perfect summer family vacation.
