About Florida Association of Special Districts

The mission of the Florida Association of Special Districts is to unify and strengthen special purpose government through education, the exchange of ideas, and active involvement in the legislative process.

There are over 1,800 Independent and Dependent Special Districts in the state of Florida, governed by more than 30 statutes, involving over 500 local governments. Special districts provide limited special purpose government on a local level, and whether your district specializes in fire control, libraries, ports and inlets, mosquitoes, water control, community development, roads, hospitals, or any other, you have the same need: to be accountable and accessible to the citizens you serve. In coordination with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Florida Association of Special Districts continues to provide current news and trends to special district employees and governing board officials.

The Benefits of Membership

Whether you are a special district employee, a special district governing board official, or a business that is essential to special districts, there are many ways you would benefit as a member of FASD.

Primarily, you will see significant savings in registration fees for member meetings, legislative forums, FASD Annual Conference, and the Certified District Manager Program. In addition, you will have access to education & specialized training, district-to-district networking & knowledge base, and legislative & governmental advocacy.
