Upcoming Meeting

67th annual FSBPA Meeting
September 11-13
Hyatt Regency Coconut Point
Bonita Springs, Florida



The Florida Shore & Beach Preservation Association was organized in 1957 at a meeting of 37 local government and university leaders concerned about the growing problem of beach erosion that had virtually destroyed important resort beaches such as Miami Beach. They recognized that erosion was a statewide problem that couldn't be handled by individual cities and counties alone.

The Florida Shore & Beach Preservation Association is a very different kind of state association—which is the source of our effectiveness.

On one hand, we function as a "league of cities and counties" on beach and coastal issues. Most coastal cities and counties are members. This gives us a respected voice on beach matters in Florida.

On the other hand, FSBPA represents private citizens concerned about beach preservation. We provide these citizens with a forum, access, and timely information. This public-private partnership is vital for preserving Florida's beaches.

How FSBPA Functions:

  • Providing information to the Florida Legislature and Congress on beach preservation issues and funding.
  • Working with local, state, and federal agencies to promote effective beach management.
  • Through publications and conferences, educating public officials and the general public on the best ways to deal with beach erosion.
