We are Here for YOU
During this unprecedented year a pandemic, local and national elections, impending storms, and local news have led our headlines, and our way of working and living has been altered. Through it all the Palm Beach Civic Association is thinking about you and will continue to keep you engaged and informed. 

Each and every week, Palm Beach TV - our island’s only video newscast, is delivered to your Inbox. Live video cameras give you a 24 - 7 look at our island, and advisories and alerts keep you notified of urgent matters. Be sure to visit our website often for updates, and encourage your friends and neighbors to sign up to receive our emailed newscasts and Membership Matters newsletter.

Thank you to The Fortin Foundation of Florida for sponsoring the Palm Beach TV weekly newscast, our website sponsor Scripps Research, and The Palm Beach Police and Fire Foundation for sponsoring Membership Matters and the PBTV Special Reports and Alerts.
Special Sponsorship Opportunities
Live Video Cams provide round the clock coverage from East to West. At 200 feet above Palm Beach, with one camera facing east toward The Breakers, the other west toward the Flagler Bridge, we are streaming real time views of the island viewable at our website www.palmbeachcivic.org. The cameras can be manipulated by our Communications staff to zoom and pan to cover a wide swath of the island. A bridge that is stuck, impending weather or just fabulous sunrises and sunsets are a click away 24-7.

We are offering a special 6 month sponsorship of each camera with customized sponsor recognition on our website and media. Please contact Allison Tardonia to learn more.
Membership is our Lifeline
As we enter the 77th season with uncertainty around us, we can remain confident that the Palm Beach Civic Association will always be here for you - our directors, our members, and our community. While it may look different for a while, we will bring you informative and inspirational speakers through virtual forums and programs throughout this coming season.  

The Civic Association has long provided an opportunity for the candidates running for office to share their views with our members and residents prior to upcoming elections. We will continue during this critical election year with virtual candidate forums prior to Election Day on November 3rd .

A Global Speakers Series will offer educational programs on key issues impacting us all. Speakers will include experts on the environment, immigration, and finance. The virtual series will be announced this fall.

Also this season, a “well-minded” series will bring health and medical experts to share insight and expertise on relevant wellness topics.

Join or renew now to receive member access to our upcoming programs this season.
Committees In Action
Our Palm Beach Civic Association committees continue to collaborate on solutions to key issues - to better our town and our community.  As concerns arise - our committees will always be there to serve our members and residents. The emphasis on healthcare, the environment, and public safety is ongoing as we battle COVID 19, eliminate harmful pesticides, and support our first responders. Special thanks to all of our committee chairs and members for their continued work via Zoom!
Where's YOUR Mask?
As a Public Safety initiative, we mailed masks to our members this summer.  Wear your masks and keep your distance. Let’s work together to restore our vibrant way of life.  

Please contact us at pbca@palmbeachcivic.org if you need additional masks.

The Palm Beach Civic Association remote offices will be closed on Monday, September 7 in observance of the holiday.  
Leadership begins with our citizens – and the Palm Beach Civic Association brings our citizens together to collaborate on key issues impacting our community. Over a dozen volunteer committees focus on pertinent topics and creative solutions for a better Palm Beach. Critical Needs Initiative, Public Safety, Strategic Planning, Healthcare, and our Environment/Beautification are at the forefront as we continue to protect and enhance our island for generations to come.
 
We look forward to giving value to our membership and providing continued opportunities to enrich our community.  Please contact us for additional information or to join us.
