2020 Convention Save the Date! September 23-25

This May, the 2019 OOH Media Conference + Expo was the premier event in Out of Home, and this year it took place in Las Vegas, NV. It brought together all parts of the industry: media, advertising agencies, advertisers and all types of suppliers to the industry.

Our very own Charlotte Audie presented to other outdoor advertising associations from across the country on the topic of hosting a successful legislative fly-in. April Salter, from SalterMitchell PR also had the opportunity to present. She spoke on the importance of our public service program and staying reactive/proactive in the media.

We are also so proud of our FOAA President, Charlotte Audie. She became one of the latest inductees into the Outdoor Advertising Association of America's Hall of Fame. Humble as ever, Charlotte continues to shine as the leader of FOAA through her commitment to legislative and industry advocacy. OAAA Hall of Fame recipients are individuals recognized for their enduring contributions to the OOH advertising industry. Charlotte has been instrumental in creating effective public service campaigns and worked to develop the Amber Alert system that has become adopted throughout the nation. Thank you, Charlotte, for your passionate advocacy and your continuing leadership for the Florida Outdoor Advertising Association.

FOAA – Rebuild 850 Partnership Spotlight

When Hurricane Michael made landfall on October 10, 2018, it was the strongest storm to ever hit the Florida Panhandle, with wind speeds of up to 155 mph. The storm moved quickly, prompting the evacuation of 140,000 people just one day after reaching hurricane status. In one more day, the storm would be gone, leaving at least 43 dead in Florida and destroying whole towns. The recovery from Michael is anything but fast, with estimated damage of at least $5 billion. REBUILD 850 was launched in November 2018 to keep North Florida’s recovery front and center and to marshal ongoing support. REBUILD 850 is co-chaired by former Florida House Speakers Allan Bense and Will Weatherford (both huge proponents of FOAA) and former U.S. Representative Gwen Graham. Because FOAA already has a public service network in place with our members throughout the state, we were ready to assist. On behalf of the current Chair of the FOAA Board of Directors, Ed Bolter, and our members, the association offered the assistance of the outdoor advertising industry in promoting Rebuild 850. FOAA would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to our members who help make this partnership such a success!
