Foley & Lardner LLP attorney Herschel Vinyard served as lead moderator at the 2015 Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) Water Forum held recently in Orlando, Florida.
As moderator, Vinyard led dynamic conversations on a wide range of water-related issues, including water supply, water quality and implementation of Florida’s Amendment 1.
The Forum featured Commissioner of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Adam Putnam as the keynote speaker. Panelists included key legislators on water issues, as well as leaders from the state’s utilities, water management and engineering communities. Several hundred of Florida’s government, civic and business leaders convened at the Forum to discuss this critical Florida policy issue.
“A robust supply of clean water is essential for our environment, our people and our businesses. This forum is critical to continue to advance that conversation throughout the state of Florida,” said Herschel Vinyard, Foley of counsel and the immediate past Secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, where he served under current Florida governor Rick Scott.
