FRA would like to introduce our new Executive Director, Amber Hughes! Amber has over 14 years of experience representing local government entities at the state and federal level. She is an expert in fiscal policy by virtue of her experience, knowledge and success in the areas of public finance!
Amber is the Senior Legislative Advocate for the Florida League of Cities. Prior to joining the Florida League of Cities, Amber served as the Senior Advisor for Finance and Insurance for Florida’s Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink. She also served as a Cabinet Aide and advocated on behalf of the CFO and the Department of Financial Services before the Florida Legislature.
Amber’s goal for FRA is to provide a strong forum for networking, various types of training and technical assistance that will help FRA members navigate their needs for redevelopment in their communities. She cannot wait to share her knowledge and experience with FRA and is dedicated to its members and their goals.
While we are so grateful to have Amber join and lead our team, FRA would like to recognize Carol Westmoreland and her 32 years of dedication and passion for redevelopment. We cannot fully express our thanks for what she has done for our association and the legacy she leaves as she starts her well-deserved retirement.
We wish Amber and Carol the best as they both enter new chapters of their lives!
If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact Amber at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jan Piland at email@example.com.
