Tampa, Community Outreach and Networking

Tampa_night There are great ways to play in Tampa.  Explore the waters, visit the theme parks, golf courses, and zoos; get a rush from a thrilling skydive; or simply enjoy everyone’s favorite pastime - shopping!  Between the quaint boutiques, glorious malls, and outlet centers, something is bound to catch your eye.

Tampa Bay has a rich culture of art, music, and history.  Consider a visit to the museums and galleries that showcase local talent.  You might even come across a renowned artist or actor.  You can also board a tour bus and learn all about Tampa’s sparkling waters, natural wetlands, and beautiful coastal areas.

The best food you’ll ever eat is in Tampa!  Partake of the freshest seafood in the country.  Get a taste of the distinct flavors of Asian, Mexican, Italian, Jamaican cuisine.  If you want the simple pleasure of American food, there are a variety of restaurants from which to choose.

The Downtown/Westshore area offers a variety of entertainment that includes a moonlit dinner cruise at the historic Ybor City.  Venture into Northwest Tampa and enjoy a mix of neighborhood cafés and popular clubs.  In Northeast Tampa you can catch performances from big-name acts at the concert hall.


ASHHRA Community Outreach 

Dress for Success - Tampa Bay



Each year, ASHHRA chooses an organization within the city of its conference to provide community outreach.  This year Dress for Success Tampa Bay was selected.  Their mission is to promote the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, a network of support and the career development tools to help women thrive in work and in life. Their programs transition women towards self-sufficiency by addressing their social and economic needs in relation to work, home and community.  Each woman is a success story: She has gone from unemployment to economic independence. 

Bring your donation (monetary and/or  others*) to the ASHHRA conference and drop them off at the Community Outreach booth.  You may also send donations directly to Dress for Success Tampa Bay at:  P.O. Box 18973, Tampa, FL 33679. Download the donation form  and include it with your donation.  It will be signed and returned to you for tax purposes.
