At their next business luncheon meeting, members of the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Chamber of Commerce will hear an update on water quality policy and projects from Eric Eikenberg, CEO of The Everglades Foundation, and Chauncey Goss, board chair of the South Florida Water Management District.
The event was postponed back in February due to emergency legislative demands in Tallahassee.
The rescheduled event will take place Wednesday, June 8, starting at 11:30 a.m. at the Marriott Sanibel Harbour Resort in Fort Myers, hosted by Bailey’s General Store and Captains for Clean Water.
“When it comes to what’s going on with Everglades projects and policies that will improve the water quality of Southwest Florida, these two gentlemen are the experts,” said John Lai, chamber president and chief executive officer. “They’ll let us in on the outlook for progress in restoring our area’s future where water is concerned.”

Advanced registration is required to attend; walk-ins are not accepted. Register by 5 p.m. on Friday, June 3, at sanibel-captiva.org or by calling 239-472-8255. Payment is due at time of registration.
