Older online meetings

The Employment First Florida Grassroots Group was a way for people with disabilities and those that care about their future share their ideas and experiences about employment. Held quarterly, each meeting had a special topic and guest speakers. Recordings, meeting materials, and summaries are available for each meeting and listed topically on the archives page. In 2018, Employment First Florida decided to change our format to better meet the needs of our constituents.
