Invitation to Deliver Invocation at CDD Meetings

The Board of Supervisors of the Waterleaf Community Development District makes it a policy to invite members of the local community to offer an invocation before the beginning of its meetings. The Board extends its invitation for a representative from your assembly to deliver the invocation at one of our Board meetings, which are held on the second Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the Hillsborough County Library – Riverview, located at 9951 Balm Riverview Rd., Riverview, FL 33569.

It is the District’s policy that a religious leader is free to offer an invocation according to the dictates of their own conscience, but, in order to comply with applicable law, the District requests that the public invocation opportunity not be exploited to proselytize or advance any one, or to disparage any other faith or belief. Each respondent who accepts the invitation to deliver an invocation at an upcoming meeting of the deliberative public body shall be scheduled to deliver an invocation on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you are willing to assist the District in this regard, please send a written reply via email to the District Manager at [email protected] or via mail to Waterleaf CDD, c/o Vesta District Services, 250 International Parkway #208, Lake Mary, FL 32746. Replies should include the name of the Invocational Speaker, the Speaker’s phone number and email address, and the name of the associated congregation/assembly.

The dates of the Board’s meetings are posted on the District’s website at https://www.waterleafcdd.org/meetings. Please note, Board meetings are held throughout the year. If you have a preference among dates, please state that request in your reply. Please provide the District with your preferred speaking dates at least one month prior to the meeting date. Generally, the Invocation Speaker will be chosen one month in advance of the meeting at which they are scheduled to speak and shall be given notice accordingly.

On behalf of the Board, thank you for considering this invitation.
