Background on how we found out about PopVox. At the AMHCA Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Jim Finley the AMHCA Lobbyist introduced it to the participants and especially gave me a chance to work it with him and I was very impressed. At the FMHCA Board Meeting in September the Board approved the use of PopVox as FMHCA's recognized system for Legislative Advocacy and to help our membership have a portal by which they can express their support for issues which are relevant to our profession and clients.
Recommendation: I strongly recommend each of you sign up for PopVox as well as sign up to receive notification of when the State PopVox for Florida opens. I suspect the more constituents from Florida who sign up for the State PopVox of Florida notification the interest in our state for this service might motivate them to speed up their launching of the Florida service.
