Miami, FL - Bilzin Sumberg partner and Environmental practice group Chair, Howard E.

Nelson was one of 55 participants selected from among hundreds of applicants for their leadership abilities, passion and commitment to making Florida a better place to live and prosper. Beginning in September 2012, the Class will convene in five different Florida cities to examine major issues facing Floridians today related to education, economy, governance, growth, environment, health care, demographics, and arts.
