It’s time for public input! Florida’s Working Interdisciplinary Networks of Guardianship Stakeholders (WINGS) wants to hear directly from Floridians whose lives have been touched by, or may be touched by, guardianship, e.g., persons under guardianship (currently or formerly) or who need decision making assistance, families of such persons, guardians, private and government attorneys, state agencies, and judges and court personnel.  To obtain feedback from the broadest spectrum possible, we ask that you share the following information with everyone you know.

~A 29-question survey instrument, is now online and may be completed until December 30.

~A public hearing will be held on Monday, December 11, 2017, from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm, at the Broward County Judicial Complex, West Building, 201 SE 6th. Street, Courtroom 15150, Fort Lauderdale, FL  33301.  Speakers are asked to limit their comments to answering one of the following questions:
·
If you could make one change in Florida’s guardianship system, what would it be?
     OR
·         How can courts improve their processes to better ensure protection of the person, property, and rights of individuals who are under guardianship or who need assistance making decisions?

~An online comment form for people who are unable to attend the public hearing (the form gives respondents an opportunity to answer the same questions that public hearing attendees will address).

The survey, the comment form, and additional information about the public hearings are posted on the Florida WINGS webpage at https://flwings.flcourts.org/.
