Keep An Eye On The Island
Check out live views of Palm Beach here.
The Palm Beach Civic Association has installed “live cams” that allow viewers to see what is happening to the east and west. If you leave Palm Beach for the summer be sure to watch while you’re away. This will be a helpful tool during hurricane season – but we hope you don’t see anything here but blue skies and sea! Enjoy the view from your computer or mobile device.
Interested in sponsoring our live cams? Benefits include your name or company logo on our home screen. Contact Allison Tardonia, Vice President of Membership | Sponsorship
19th Amendment Centennial
PBCA Director Nancy Brinker
Named a Woman of the Century
As the country commemorates 100 years since the 19th Amendment, which legally gave women the right to vote in the U.S., was ratified, a USA Today list recognizes 10 influential Florida women whose contributions to society over the past century have changed the way Floridians, and the rest of the world, view women and their accomplishments. Congratulations to Palm Beach Civic Association Director The Honorable Nancy Brinker for recently being named one of Florida’s Women of the Century.

The Palm Beach Civic Association together with the Citizens Association of Palm Beach, and the Town planned to celebrate the 19th Amendment Centennial at an event rescheduled for November 2 – the evening before Election Day. Alternative plans are pending due to continuing COVID 19 restrictions. Stay tuned for an update!

Safety Matters
File of Life
In March, through an initiative of the Palm Beach Civic Association Healthcare Committee, our members were mailed two File of Life sleeves and information cards. The information that you include on the cards will help first responders should you have a medical emergency. Extra cards and sleeves are available. Please contact us at to request additional File of Life packets.
Where is YOUR Mask?
Cloth face masks were recently mailed to all our current members – and will continue to be sent to all who join or renew this summer. Let’s fight the COVID 19 numbers together!

Take a selfie wearing your PBCA mask! Email the photo and your location to us at to be included in our next newsletter.

Thinking of that hard to buy for person? Palm Beach Civic Association membership is a thoughtful way to say thank you, celebrate, or honor a friend or neighbor.  Click here to honor or pay tribute to that special person. Gifts of $250 and above will receive membership benefits for one year.
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.
The Palm Beach Civic Association will be announcing our highly regarded Global Speaker Series and additional programs this fall. Whether virtually or in person, we will present topnotch speakers of great interest to you during our 77th Season. 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.
As summer takes you away from Palm Beach, keep an eye on our island. Click here to see live cam coverage all day, every day.
